- Get two or more crayons that are about the same length but different colors (brights look best).
- Line them up with the points facing the same direction and wrap masking tape around them (or wrap a rubber-band tightly around them).
3. Now let your child color with the wrapped crayons, making whatever she wants, changing color combinations and exploring shapes and design.
Materials Needed: old crayons with paper removed, lightweight white paper, masking tape, various textured objects (coins, keys, combs, paper clips, rubber-bands, etc.)
4. Have your child color over the paper with the side of a crayon. Use different crayons in various colors. Watch her delighted reaction as the objects gradually reveal themselves!
