Easy (866)      5 to 10s (606)      Chalk (8)      Abstract (2)     
Most kids use their chalk dry on a chalkboard or to scribble on the sidewalk. However it can also be used wet to create some unusual abstract artwork.

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

Materials
Card
Masking tape (painter's tape)
Chalk
Water

Method
Lay out your card.
Arrange masking tape over the card in different directions, leaving unsual spaces between the pieces.

Dip the end of a piece of chalk in water and then colour in the spaces between the masking tape.

You can use several different colours.
Carefully remove the masking tape to reveal your abstract art. I found that the masking tape pulled the edges of the paper in places so it might be better to leave everything to fully dry first.
