    Cover your art area with newspaper. Put a small amount of water in a paper cup. Add drops of one color of Crayola® Washable Watercolors with a Paint Brush. Dip a tissue in the paint. Gently open up the tissue and lay it flat to dry on paper towels. Repeat with colors you'll use for a mosaic on the sides of a recycled tissue box.
