Kids Activities: Pencil Shavings Art

by Liska Myers

Create with Watercolour Pencils

First, we sharpened the watercolour pencils. Instead of throwing shavings onto a piece of scrap paper or directly into a bin, we did the sharpening above a clean sheet of paper. Look at all these shavings, falling down!

With watercolour pencils, first you draw and then you add water to the picture. I gave my son a brush with a cup of water, and he dabbed the shavings with the brush until he had a pretty cheerful abstract watercolour painting
