Young learners become authors as they write their own books about colors, using crayon resist art techniques.
Talk with children about their favorite colors and the objects, foods, and animals which are those colors. Encourage imaginative choices.
To create personalized books, fold white paper in half for the inside pages. Children write color names and draw things that are their favorite colors with Crayola® Crayons. Use the crayon labels as resources for spelling.
To make a book cover, use Crayola Scissors to cut firm paper...or oak tag to a size slightly larger than the book pages.
Illustrate the cover with more crayon drawings and color names, as well as the author/artist's name. Press firmly.
Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Paint over the cover with Crayola Washable Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes. This crayon resist technique leaves a special background effect.
When the covers are dry, have an ADULT staple the finished pages and cover together.
