Homemade Color Copier

Has your child ever drawn a picture and wanted to make a copy of it? With this activity she can, and you don't even have to leave the house!

Materials Needed:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Crayons
  • Tape

    What to do:
    Step One: Have your child color one sheet of paper with a crayon until it's nearly covered.

    Step Two: Now place the sheet, colored side down, on top of a clean sheet of paper.

    Step Three: Tape the sheets in place so they don't move.

    Step Four: Have her draw a picture with the pencil on the back side of the colored sheet.

    Step Five: Pull the two sheets of paper apart. You should have an exact copy of the picture she just drew!
