Everyone loves to paint, right? This is such a simple craft for children, and it's practically impossible to mess it up! Most of us have watercolors hanging around the house somewhere. I know my kids were required in elementary school to furnish a set each year. At the end of the year, we add them to our collection.
This is a great gift idea for Mother's Day coming up this Sunday! Water color bookmarks are classy AND easy to make. Personalize them with mom's favorite colors. Add designs. Or simply brush on some color.
Once the paint is dry, add a quote, Bible verse, or other words of encouragement. My calligraphy ink was completely dried up! I didn't want to run to the store for ink, so I painted the words on with acrylic craft paint. Permanent marker would work just fine for this craft too!
Simple and Beautiful.
