Art Project: Bright on Black
black construction paper
construction paper crayons
Friends / Hout, Mies van
(This author has written several titles with this same art style and any of them would work fine.)
What Kids Do: scribble
Hindsight Tip: I considered also offering colored chalk or cray-pas as alternatives, but in the end decided to go with the simplest (and least messy, especially if it went in the mouth) option because I already owned a class set of these special crayons. If you don't own them, the others would work just as well.
Variations to try:try giving them red crayons on red construction paper or yellow on yellow, etc.
Adult Challenge: Big hands off the art!
