Paper Plate Series: Scratch art

Crayons are such a great invention! I usually keep a small pack of them in my bag along with some paper for my daughter to engage herself while waiting for a meal at the restaurant or somewhere on the road.

I have recently come across a few ideas on how to make your own scratch art with crayons. It is easy, fun, messy but entertaining for kids!

You will need:

A piece of construction paper or a paper plate

Crayons of different color plus a black crayon


Additional paper for decoration

Glue or double-sided tape

Optional: chopsticks or straws

The instructions you can find on this lovely blog – Learn Create Play. This is where we got our inspiration to make the art and here’s the end result!

To make the flower stem we attached a chopstick to the back.

Hope you have fun! Enjoy and thank you for reading my blog!
