  • Paintbrushes
  • Water paint
  • Water
  • Containers
  • White glue
  • Newspapers

Procedures

  1. Students make a crayon drawing on the white paper.
  2. Have students crumple their paper.
  3. Then have them uncrumple the paper and lay it out flat on their work surface.
  4. Using A watered down paint and a paintbrush, students cover the crumpled up crayon drawing with color.
  5. After papers dry, you'll see that all the little cracks that formed when the paper was crumpled are now filled with paint.
  6. Using an old paintbrush, cover the picture with white glue.
  7. The glue will dry clear and give the crackle picture a nice shiny finish.
  8. If they like, your students can glue the crackle picture onto a piece of construction paper and make a greeting card for friends or family.

Facts
The fun folks at Crayola® tell us that each year, North Americans buy 2.5 billion crayons! Not only that, but the average North American uses 730 crayons by age 10. That's a lot of crayon crackle paintings!
