DIY Scratch Art

My friend found the brilliant idea of making your own scratch art when we were co-oping together and learning about the ocean.  So, I thought I would share how we made our own scratch art.  It's really simple!


Cardstock Paper (or other thicker type paper since you will be scratching these later and you want 
                            them not to tear)
Black Tempera Paint or Poster Paint
Paint brush (Bigger, thicker ones would be better)
Some kind of tool to scratch with (Be creative - toothpicks, popsicle sticks, etc.)
Newspaper, etc. to protect your work surface

FIRST: Color the cardstock heavily with crayon.  You want it to be thoroughly
 and heavily covered so the colors will show through brightly when scratched.

 SECOND: When your entire surface is covered with crayon you 
can paint the whole surface with black paint and set it aside to dry. 


THIRD: Once it is dry then you can take your scratch tool and start scratching
 whatever picture or design your little heart or your little one's heart desires.
