The Elephant of Surprise: Art for Non-Artists: Easy Doily Watercolor. This would be sooo cute for a journal page or wrapping paper. And you could probably use the now-painted doilies in something too . <<< DID YOU JUST SAY ELEPHANT
I loved doing this in art class. Art With Mr. E: Line Design w/Shading - Grade Very cool, fun art shading project from Art With Mr. E. he's an elementary art specialist. Try this with your kids (but I think grown ups would enjoy this too).
