I’m generally geeking out on making scratch boards these days…do you remember these? You take a sheet of paper, cover the surface with as many colored crayons as possible, then slap a layer of black paint on top. Once the paint dries, take a toothpick or skewer or even a coin and scratch away to reveal the mystery colors beneath. Fun, fun!
I even bought a package I found at a local art store and though the texture and color are definitely better (it’s the square one on the right above), there’s something about the homemade version that makes my heart go pitter patter.
If you’ll excuse me, I have a few more sheets of paper to color. I feel like I’m in elementary school again!
