a couple years ago, the three of us gathered our kids together once a week for craft day. craft day usually included a fun craft, some food (of course) and the kids taking off to go play with each other as soon as they were done.
this week we will be sharing some of the crafts that we made. with summer break just around the corner, they might come in real handy.
(idea found here)
what you need:
* light colored cardstock
* sponge brush
* black acrylic paint
* something to etch with (fork, toothpick…)
first step: using your crayons, get a lot of color on your cardstock. the more the better. dust off all wax when you’re done coloring.

You can do this with black crayons over the colors too! 🙂
I remember doing this when I was young. They are beautiful!
I am so doign this with my boys this summer. Thanks for the fun art project.
Doty Family says
That just jumped to the top of my "to do" list!
We used to use the black crayon over top and it worked great. My kids love this kind of paper. They often bring it home from school with their creations etched on it.
Thank you for sharing….I'll look forward to more. We are done with school today and need lots of ideas for crafts…weather isn't the best yet.

is there a specific type of paint that will not crack, or must the paint be very thinly applied?
