Crinkle Crayon Print


  1. Crayons
  2. Thick paper
  3. Newspaper
  4. Cold water
  5. Paint—black or brown


Have your child draw a picture or design with the crayons on a sheet of paper. Crumple the paper and dip it into the water. Squeeze out the water and spread the drawing to dry on the newspaper. Paint over the drawing. Place another sheet of paper over the top immediately to soak up the excess paint. Separate the sheets of paper and your child will have a lithograph of the original drawing.
