With the holidays it seem like the perfect time to complete a project together…
Unplug your kids have a weekly [tag]unplugged project[/tag] that you can join in by adding to their Mr. Linky. You can go see all the other unplugged projects. It’s a lot of fun to come up with a project on a theme for your little one.
My initial thought was some painting as we hadn’t done that for a while. Then I remembered we’d tried some [tag]crayon resist[/tag] before with some success. We looked out the window at all the snow. The middle one suggested we paint a snowman.
Alas this time our ideas didn’t work out. We were trying to reproduce a snowman at night time( dark) and during a blizzard( light).

After pressing hard with the dark crayon. We mixed up the watercoloured paint and painted.
Even though we can see the snowman scene that’s just the flash working. It was much harder to see where to paint and draw. They held it up to the light a lot.
Repeat on white paper with white crayon.
Although we didn’t get the crayon resist we were hoping for we had fun drawing our magic pictures and playing around with the paint. If you’d like to try your own crayon resist try here for a better result.
