Claude Monet – Coffee Filter Water Lilly

Supplies:  Paper, watercolors, water, brushes, green lilly pads.

On a piece of white construction paper, cardstock or watercolor paper paint the entire surface using blue, green and yellow.  This is the water.

Place a pre cut green pad on the paper.  Glue it down.  Either one large one or a few smaller ones.

Paint coffee filter(s) in pretty colors with a different color in the center.  Glue on the page.  If they are not too wet or once they dry the coffee filter can be crunched up like a flower.

Claude Monet – Crayon Resist Watercolor Lillies


White card stock or watercolor paper will work best for this project.

Start with a yellow crayon.  Draw about 3 lillies on the page in different locations.

Use a green crayon to draw the pads underneath the lillies.  Ovals will work fine.

Add little orange centers to the flowers.

Encourage children to draw heavy and not lightly with thier crayons.  This will help the crayons color come through once painted.

Using watercolors in blue, green, and yellow, paint the entire background of the page.
