Keep your kids busy and full of excitement with this Secret Christmas Art craft!
My daughter had so much fun revealing her Christmas scene. She kept telling me with every brush stroke that she knew what the “secret drawing” was and it kept her excited and full of suspense. We did something similar in the fall, Secret Autumn Art, and it was just as exciting!
It’s an easy craft to set up, though it may look hard. All you need is a few of the most basic art supplies. YUP! ONLY BASIC ART SUPPLIES NEEDED HERE! Keep reading to see how you can create this Secret Christmas Art in no time!

Instructions are so simple! With your white crayon, draw something Christmas related on your cardstock (I drew a simple nativity scene). Can you believe that’s all you had to do?! Yep, now let your child use the watercolors and paint right over the white crayon to reveal the drawing. So exciting!

What is my child learning?
-Creativity + imagination + cognitive skills (as they reveal their sceneries, kids can think, predict and wonder about what it can be)
-Small + fine motor skills (holding on to the paint brush with pointer finger and thumb)
-Concentrated play (having a single activity lined up for the child helps them stay focused and put all their attention towards one activity)
