Watercolor Resistance Paintings

This project is so much fun to do with kids & people with intellectual disabilities! I like to make it fun for my students by telling them it’s like a magic trick, or a spy with a hidden message that needs to be revealed. This project is fun for everyone, I really enjoy it as well!

Tips:
-be very careful & slow when taking the tape off! Let paint dry all the way first.
-stick tape to any surface first a few times before putting it on the paper (I use my pants). It will still stick on paper but will be way easier to peel off!
