Start with crayon rubbings, then make rings with the paper strips. Decorate a room, count down to the first day of school, or make paper chains at a party.
Creating crayon rubbings is fun! Use the side of a Crayola Triangular Crayon to create rubbings of different textures with items found around your house. Some ideas to try are coins, speaker holes, colander, tile floor, rubber stamps, a woven basket…the possibilities are endless!
To make a rubbing, remove the wrapper from the crayon. Lay paper over the textured item and rub with the flat side of the crayon. Fill several sheets with different rubbings made with a variety of colors. Rub more than once—changing the texture and/or the color—for unusual effects.
Cut your rubbings into strips. Write words or draw designs on top of the rubbings if you like. Glue the ends of one strip together to form a ring. For each additional ring, slip the new strip through the last ring before gluing the ends. Air-dry the glue.
Hang up your chain for a colorful decoration.
