Scratch Art

This was so easy, I'm surprised I haven't tried it before! We did this in after school Art class...the students colored patterns in with crayon (making sure to press hard...great way to use all of my short, broken crayons) and then painted over their patterns with black tempera paint. After they dried, we scratched out all kinds of designs! The best scratchers we found after some trial and error were toothpicks. The kids loved uncovering the color and wanted to keep doing more and more. Definitely a project to repeat!
