This picture looks pretty ordinary…until you paint a black watercolor wash over it. That’s when the ghost appears!

Drawing in crayon is fun, but it’s even cooler to have a secret hidden inside…
For younger kids, try giving them, “secret drawing” messages, and let them apply the wash to see the secret picture. Older kids can exchange their own secret drawings, and then paint over the crayon to reveal the surprise!


Any way you do it, it’s a fun art technique that just looks cool, even with abstract drawings. Just another tool with which young people can express themselves. Stay tuned for more fun seasonal artsie things to do with your children!

*Note: For best results, use regular crayons, not the washable ones.
