How to make the q-tip painted snowflakes

We start off by making the background blue. We used watercolor and watercolor paper for this. If you have younger kids you can skip this step and just use a paper that is blue already.

We used a wide brush to paint the paper with water. You can start this way to make it easier to spread the watercolor.

Then we use a mix of blues to make the background. The fun part of using watercolors is that you can blends all the colors together to make different colors of blue.
