Have you tried crayon resist watercolor painting yet? It’s a really fun way to paint, and the end result is always a surprise because you normally use a white crayon. However, for this craft and for little ones, we also used a color crayon called Sandy Beach. It’s a really light tan color. That way the kids can see the face they’re creating, and the result still turns out the same.
