• Construction paper or thin cardboard
  • Black marker
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Crayons


On a sturdy piece of paper (construction or even thin cardboard, like a cereal box cut flat), draw or trace a simple line drawing, such as flowers, boats on the ocean, or a landscape. Go over the lines with a thick black marker. Then, use Elmer’s glue to trace over the lines again. Allow to dry. When dry, use crayons to color the whole page, blending different colors as you go. This creates a nice, textured colored piece that is different than crayons alone.
