Colouring is a fun and easy activity for children of all ages. Experiment with texture while using up your old crayons to create wonderful pictures and/or shapes with sandpaper.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Wax Crayon
Sandpaper
Traceables
Scissors

Method
For young children, talk about the texture of the paper. They will have fun just feeling the "bumpy paper".



First Sandpaper


Let's colour! Encourage children to press hard to maximize transfer of the wax crayon. Use lots of colours and try to cover as much of the page as possible. Older children can create pictures or patterns, younger children can just have fun scibbling.



First Sandpaper


When the pattern is finished, trace your shape on the smooth side of the paper. Or, if the children prefer, keep the drawing intact.

Cut out your shapes.

Note: We used 80 grit for our starfish. The lower the grit number, the more rough the sandpaper. A much smoother paper would be 220 grit. Experiment with different textures!
