Activity: Watercolor Nameplate

A watercolor nameplate can add a colorful touch to a child’s room and show off their personality.

With a parent’s help, the child will paint their name, adding decoration to each letter to reflect the things they love!

To complete this activity, you’ll need either a long strip of paper or one sheet of printer paper for each letter of the child’s name.

Write the child’s name in large, capital letters as a guide — lightly, with pencil, so it doesn’t show through the paint.

Have the child pick out their favorite colors of watercolor paint. They can choose one color for all of the letters, alternate colors, or use a different color for each letter!

With a thick brush, paint the letters. Once they dry, it’s time to add some embellishment!

Choose symbols to add around each letter — perhaps to match each letter of the child’s name (like stars for “S”). It’s okay if you and your child aren’t stellar artists; you can use stencils, trace pictures, or just embrace the imperfections!

Once finished and completely dry, hang the nameplate on the wall (perhaps in a frame, if you want to protect it from tears or other damage).
