This water color banner is a fun art craft for kids. First they get to work on a creative art project and then they get to craft a fun way to display their art! Most kids love to paint, color, and draw. I have stacks of my children’s coloring sheets in a pile in our garage! I recently found my circular punch and decided to display some of the art work by turning it into a decorative water color banner. Try this fun art craft for kids the next time your child wants to break out the water color paints.
Fun Art Craft For Kids: Water Color Banner Tutorial
Supplies Needed For This Art Craft For Kids

*Jar of Water
*Circle Punch or Circular Object To Trace Circles With
*String or ribbon (for hanging water color banner)
Water Color Banner Art Craft For Kids Directions:
First, gather your art craft supplies and let your child grab a seat at the table. Next, let them paint! There’s no specific pattern to make or color to use. It’s all up to what your child feels like making! I love to use water colors too so I joined in and colored a sheet as well.
You can paint as many sheets as you would like. I got about 13 circles from each piece of paper and made two 13 circle banners. Once your water color sheets are dry, (this only takes a few minutes) start cutting or punching your circles out! The kids can definitely help with this one. I let my 2 year old help me with the circular punch. Just use proper care and supervision.
Once your circles are punched out, take your string and tape your circles to your string. I used washi tape to hold my circles onto my string but any tape you have around your house will do just fine. When you have your circles taped, you have officially made Water Color Banner! This is such a fun art craft for kids because they get all the creative element of free art design and some of the structured element of crafting with a purpose. It is also a great way to display you child’s art. Let you child decided where they’d like to hang up their water color creation. The Water Color Banner definitely adds beautiful colors to any room in your house!
