MAKE RUBBING PLATES
For younger children, this step can be completed by an adult ahead of time.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut several pieces of poster board into medium-size pieces about 4 x 10 inches (10 x 25 cm).
Print from the computer, copy from a book or create your own wood grain pattern. Cut out the wood grain pattern with scissors and glue onto a piece of cut poster board. Trace over the lines in the wood grain pattern with Crayola School Glue and air-dry completely overnight.
MAKE TEXTURED WOOD GRAIN DESIGNS
Use the flat side of a Color Stick to color a piece of construction paper with several lighter shades of brown. Place the colored construction paper on top of each of the rubbing plate and use the flat side of a dark brown Color Stick to rub over the paper until the wood grain image appears. Fill several sheets of construction paper with wood grain rubbings.
Carefully cut a recycled oatmeal or snack cylinder container in half lengthwise without cutting the base. For younger children, this step can be completed by an adult ahead of time.
Lay the wood grain rubbings side by side and glue them into one long sheet by overlapping the edges about 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Sketch openings for eye and mouth openings and cut out with scissors.
Use Color Sticks to color over the wood grain rubbings to create a traditional Hawaiian Polynesian design.
Wrap the color wood grain construction paper around the cut recycled oatmeal or snack cylinder. Make sure the face lines up in the cut out area of the cylinder. Overlap and glue the ends together securing the paper to the cylinder.
