Scratch Art- Take 1

The kids and I tried another project from the “Storybook Art” book yesterday. I titled this post “take 1” because there was some stumbling along the way and we intend to try again with the proper materials. As for this time, we learned you need to cover the paper completely and thickly with crayon first (the scribbles look cool but leave white spots that grab the paint), rub soap over the crayon (we forgot on one), and use tempera paint as instructed (vs. the acrylic paint I had on hand). Despite it all, we still pulled out some interesting pictures.
