Kids Craft – The Hidden Picture

Here’s a great craft idea! Draw your own “invisible” picture with a white crayon, and then paint over it to reveal the “hidden” picture!

What you Need

  • white sketch paper
  • white crayon (you can also use a white wax candle)
  • watered down water color or poster paint
  • paint brush

What you do:

  1. Use your white crayon to draw your “hidden” picture on a white piece of sketch paper. Make sure you press down firmly, so the crayon wax sticks to the paper.
  2. Add a small amount of water to your water color or poster paint.
  3. Paint over your drawing—and see the “hidden” picture pop out!
  4. As an option, use multiple colors of paint. Be creative!
