      I would love to hear more about this adorable project. How older were these students? Did you paint the background first? Love these!

      hi elizabeth - thanks! this is one of our favorites! -we do it with kids as young as 4 and as old as 12. we use long heavy weight (6+ ply) poster board and Prisma markers (permanent) and then the kids do a watercolor wash at the end -wet the paper using big sponges and quickly paint two contrasting colors, one at the top and another at the bottom, then quickly use the sponges to blend the colors. the poster board curls a little while wet but dries perfectly flat

      Thanks! We used liquid watercolors and did a wash - two different colors on each end and then blended them with a wet sponge from top to bottom!
