What child wouldn’t want their own garden inside their house? Creating texture rubbings of outdoor objects will allow them to do just that! Take a handful of crayons outside and look at all the textures that surround where you live. You can discuss objects that are hard, soft, rough, bumpy and smooth. Kids also learn how to alter the pressure of their crayons to get different types of rubbings. If they press hard, it will create a strong image, and softer strokes create a soft, blurry image. Make rubbings on as many squares as you can and watch your rubbing garden grow!
What You Need:
- Pre-cut 3”x3” squares of white drawing paper
- Crayons in all colors
- Glue Stick
- Black Vellum Paper
- Printable leaf rubbing frames (optional)
