If your child is anything like mine, some days it feels impossible to get them away from Minecraft. Entice your little Minecraft fan with an art project that gets them creating something in the real world before heading back into one they crafted out of pixels.
What You Need
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolors and paintbrush
- Blue painter’s tape
Begin by taping the shape of a Minecraft Creeper with the blue painter’s tape. (If you aren’t using watercolor paper, the tape may rip the paper when removed.)
It’s up to you or your child how precise you’d like to be. Scissors can make a huge difference with clean corners if one of you is a perfectionist!
Next, use watercolors to paint the inside of the creeper and around the outside to make sure those lines are visible. A typical creeper is green on the inside, but (as with any art project) feel free to be as creative as you’d like.
While the watercolors are still wet, sprinkle the salt on the paint.
Once the paint is dry, peel the tape off the paper carefully. Gently brush off the salt for an interesting pixelated look for the completed creeper!
