30 In Summer

Watercolour Popsicles

Hi guys, today I’m popping in real quick to show you these fun watercolour popsicles! In the summer, you can always find some real ones in our fridge for sure!

To get a really nice pattern and different shades, I used a paper towel and let it soak up all the water.

….and then I just started painting the popsicles using this technique on some parts.

These were so easy to paint, I just started with the half circle on top and then adding squares and the popsicle stick. I let the colours mix and used paper towel to get that washed effect and get rid of too much water…

Today’s post was a super quick one, but I hope you enjoyed it anyways! 

Wishing you a super day!

    You are getting so Adventuresome with your watercolor techniques. These popsicles are a really fun piece of art. I bet they would look great matted and framed and hung in your kitchen. You really inspire me to try more things and experiment.

    Hi again! Just wanted to tell you how much fun Benjamin and I had making watercolor popsicles. It was messy and great fun- although ours are not as pretty as yours, but on refrigerators from R.I. to Mass.! I’m sure your kindergarteners will love these too. Thank-you once more for this fun project, as always. You are so gifted!

      That is soo sweet of you Ellen to let me know how it went with your grandson, I’m so happy you enjoyed this and that you had so much fun! The messier the better, right? Thank you so much, I appreciate your comment so much!

    They look lovely Katrin. I’m loving your new watercolors. The kids are going to love you to bits when you go back to work as a kindergarten teacher, you’ll awaken the artist in all of them.

      Thanks friend! I’m teaching kindergarten, and yes, that will be art as well, so yes, this would be a fun activity for four year olds for sure!

    Too cute! Making these today with my Grandson, probably will be messy and FUN! He has gotten good with hand over hand activities and this will need some of that. Thank-you for our rainy day activity and hopefully refrigerator art. Lovely post, as always!

      Oh, I’m sure he will have a great time painting these or anything with watercolours Ellen! I’m glad you like them and yes, it’s a fun activity for a rainy day for sure! I wish it was raining here….can’t take the heat any longer.. Thanks for your visit as always Ellen!
