Celebrate Three Kings Day with a silhouette painting of the wise men. Create a beautiful night sky with Crayola® Watercolor Paints and salt.
Three Kings Day is on January 6 and is widely celebrated in the Hispanic culture.
On a piece of Crayola Marker & Watercolor paper, paint an evening sky with blue and purple Crayola Watercolor paints and brushes. Paint a brown strip of land at the bottom.
Sprinkle salt on the picture to resemble stars in the sky while the paint in still wet. Set aside the painting with the salt on it until it dries.
Cut out pictures of the three wise men and a camel with Crayola Scissors and trace onto a piece of black construction paper. Cut out the black silhouettes of the three wise men and a camel. Younger children may need adult assistance with this step.
When the watercolor painting is dry, carefully brush off the excess salt from the paper.
Place the black silhouettes on the painted paper and glue in place with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Our crayons have been rolling off the assembly line since 1903, and you can see how it’s done.
