Circle Art

This is a great art project that utilizes materials that you probably already have in your house!
To make this pretty circle art, you will need:
  • Paper cups (we used ones from our bathroom)
  • Black or gray paint (we used gray)
  • Watercolors
  • Paper
We started by dipping the paper cup into the gray paint and stamping circles.  I encouraged them to do as many or few as they wanted, but told them it’d be cool to have some overlap, too.

Once our gray circle outlines were dry, we got out the watercolors.

They worked SO hard to paint inside the cirlces and semi-circles.

The three year old did a GREAT job!  Daddy was home and helped a tiny bit but for the most part, G did it on his own!

 And the 7 year old produced a really pretty piece also!

I ran these through my Scotch brand laminator because I really want to preserve these.
So easy and I didn’t have to go out and buy any products, which is always a win!

    I like this craft idea. It is easy to do and your child can even see color changes when they fill in the overlapping circles with different colors of paint.
