Watercolor doodle flowers are a fun & relaxing watercolor art activity for kids! We think these are great to create alone or with family & friends winding down together. (This idea was inspired by the watercolor flower doodles on Art is Basic.)

Here at The Artful Parent, we value process art (open-ended activities allowing kids to explore through art). This activity fits the bill as each child’s artwork will look different. And it’s a great one to revisit over and over again.

  1. Paint watercolor dots.

    First, paint a variety of small watercolor dots, splotches and brush prints all over your paper in different colors.


  2. Then add designs with crayons or colored pencils.

    After the paint dries, use crayons or colored pencils to turn the colorful dots into flowers. Next, draw petals, center designs, or other interesting patterns.

  3. Now add paint for added watercolor details.

    Then add additional details with watercolors as well. You can even try this on a piece of sticker paper or large address labels to make your own stickers.

  4. Cut & glue watercolor doodle flowers.

    Simply cut out around each flower and glue onto a new piece of colored paper. Or peel and stick you using sticker paper.
