4th Grade - Homemade Watercolors

I saw this idea on Pinterest a few years ago and continue to be surprised how well it works.  We reuse dried up markers and turn them into watercolors in a few easy steps.  Simply, fourth graders sorted through all the markers in the art room and separated the dried out ones from the usable ones.

 Then we put the dried up markers into small water cups by color to soak for a few days.

We kept the lids, because you never know.

We used the paints to do some free painting the next time the class met.
