Crayon Texture Rubbings

Crayon Texture Rubbings
Texture is one of the six elements of art.
Take a nature walk and have your child look for areas that would make good texture rubbings. Riley thought that the middle of the sidewalk looked just fine about 50 times! She thought it was so cool to be 'making artwork' on our walk. Crayons without paper are best so that they can be rubbed on the side. Older children can find letters and see what words they can spell. Younger children can identify letters and just think it is so neat that they ‘appear’ on their paper!
So go enjoy a fall walk outside and make some art.
