Surprise Watercolor Drawings are a fun way to paint! Kids can make their creations, give them to a friend, and watch as their friend uncovers the magic drawing using watercolor paint!

We’ve partnered with Imperial Sugar to bring you this fun activity, featuring sugar glue that you can make at home!

Surprise Watercolor Drawings

Here’s what you need to make surprise watercolor drawings:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Watercolor paper (or you can use white paper)
  • Watercolor paints (darker colors work best)
  • Paintbrushes

In a medium saucepan, mix together the flour, sugar, vegetable oil and water over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture is smooth to make glue.

Painting Surprise Watercolor Drawings

Use a paintbrush to paint designs onto the paper. We made a drawing with stars and another with a secret message.

Allow the drawings to dry overnight.

Paint over the paper with watercolor paints. Darker colors, like blue and black, work best. Allow to dry and the drawings will show through the paint!

How fun are these? My son thought it was so cool how the drawings seemed to just appear!

Sugar is for More Than Baking!

Sugar is one of the most-used ingredients in our house. I love that I can share this fun and traditional recipe with my family. Sugar is so versatile which is why I always keep a nice big bag around at home!

You can visit the Imperial Sugar website for additional crafts, recipes, and gift ideas!

Push your Needlepoint

Today we’ll finish up talking about balance and exciting needlepoint by looking at a piece I’m finishing up and talking about it. The design is from Two Sisters Needlepoint and has three small Lily-style shifts. I loved it immediately because it puts those iconic shifts in a clever small package. My philosophy for stitching canvases […]
