Melting Marker Colors

Melting Marker Colors craft

Creative activities, such as Melting Marker Colors, enable children to expand their understanding of color and art on their own terms.

  • 1.

    Cover your craft area with newspaper. Wet a piece of heavy, light-colored paper. You're going to experiment with mixing colors. With a Crayola Paint Brush and clear water, dampen the paper.

  • 2.

    Choose a Crayola Washable Marker. Make strokes of color on your wet paper.

  • 3.

    Color over the first color with another color. Or put a line of one color close to another color. Watch how the colors melt into each other to create a third color, or a rainbow effect.

  • 4.

    Experiment with different colors and amazing effects. What new colors can you make? Air-dry your papers on more newspaper, spreading them out so they don't touch.
