This project is so much fun to do with kids & people with intellectual disabilities! I like to make it fun for my students by telling them it’s like a magic trick, or a spy with a hidden message that needs to be revealed. This project is fun for everyone, I really enjoy it as well!
-white crayons or oil pastels
-watercolor paper (or any paper you have. Printer paper is cheap & works just fine. The paper might slightly wrinkle, however.)
-cup of water
-painters tape or masking tape (*optional) to add a nice white border
-add masking tape to make a border. This also helps keep the picture in place
-color image onto white paper
-next add watercolors. It is exciting to see the hidden image that comes out!
-dry then peel tape!
-be very careful & slow when taking the tape off! Let paint dry all the way first.
-stick tape to any surface first a few times before putting it on the paper (I use my pants). It will still stick on paper but will be way easier to peel off!
