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.
You place the cookie cutter on your paper. You can place it anywhere you want. You hold it in place with one hand.
Then you use a q-tip to paint inside the cookie cutter. You spread the paint all over inside the cookie cutter.
Then you move the cookie cutter or gett a different cookie cutter and keep painting!
