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)
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.
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!

Good morning and happy Wednesday! I’m wearing a few new and prized additions to my closet after lusting after them for so long and finally, finally checking eBay for them: this Rochas skirt (still available in a few sizes) and these party-ready satin mules by Manolo Blahnik.

There have been a few snowflakes this season, but just a coating here and there that didn’t ‘stick’ around for too long. Philly’s first true snowfall happened last Saturday, December 9th, at the last workshop of 2017. I know it sounds cliche, but it truly was the best (and merriest) way to close out yet…read more
