Colorful Paint Splatter cards for Holi – The Festival of Colors

Sharing is caring!

Holi, the “Festival of Colors” is a major celebration in the Hindu religion. Holi is a great time to play with colors with your kids. The streets of India become flooded with people singing, dancing, and throwing colored powders & colored water at each other. We decided to indulge in some pre-Holi fun by splashing colors on paper!

These Colorful Paint Splatter cards for Holi were so much fun to make! Making your own cards is the perfect excuse for some crafty fun. My daughter was so proud of how nicely our hand-painted color splash HOLI cards turned out, and she cannot wait to mail them off to faraway family and friends who can’t be with us to enjoy the festival in person.

Now comes the fun part. Make sure you line your workplace with a plastic sheet or newspapers. It helps to sit in the middle of the room or outdoors so that furniture or walls don’t get splashed by accident.

We used liquid glass paints that came in tiny plastic bottles with a nozzle. It was easy to hold and splatter directly with it. Using vibrant watercolors and a paintbrush would yield equally stunning results.
