Glitter Watercolor Christmas Lights Painting

Christmas is our favorite time of the year. We are always doing activities for it. This year we are doing another book count down. We have been doing a craft with a lot of our books. Every day we are picking out a new book to read and trying to match up crafts with the books every other day.

Today we read Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. We love this book and how fun it is. We talked about what goes on a Christmas tree and how we decorated our own tree.

The one thing we could think of was Christmas Lights. So we pulled out the Christmas lights cookie cutters and had a blast doing this Glitter Watercolor Christmas Light Painting.

How we did this activity

You place the cookie cutter on the paper where you want it. Them you pick a color you want. Then holding the cookie cutter you paint inside it. This is great for fine motor control and an easy way to paint different shapes.

After you have one you move to the next one you want to paint. If you want to overlap the colors I suggest waiting a little time between them.

The last thing we did was connect all the light with a black marker. It was fun to see how everyone had their own ideas on how to make it work.
