Make up your own story or tell one you already know by illustrating it on recycled CDs! Create a traditional Sioux story stick with an environmentally friendly twist!
Think of a story/legend you know or make up one. What are the three most important events, one each in the beginning, middle, and end of the story? Figure out how you will illustrate these three events on recycled CDs. For example, you may want to show the sun in the morning when the story begins, in the afternoon when something else happens, and then the moon shining as the day ends. This is one way to create a prop-- much like a Sioux story stick--to retell your story.
Choose your Crayola Premier™ Tempera Paint colors. Consider how one or more Crayola Tempera Mixing Mediums (Texture It!, Pearl It!, Glitter It!) would enhance the scene. Glitter might add sparkle to the sun or moon while soil or rocks would look great with texture.
Cover your painting area with newspaper. On a small paper plate or other palette, use a brush to mix small amounts of the paint with the mediums you chose. Dab your paint on the CDs for a thick, dimensional look! Air-dry the CDs overnight.
To add details, gently scratch off designs with the end of a paintbrush if you like. Cut yarn with Crayola Scissors into 3 different lengths. Tape yarn on the back of each CD with masking tape. Tie CDs in the correct sequence to hang down from a stick, either one you have found or a dowel stick.
Retell your story by explaining what is happening in each picture. Be sure to give lots of extra details about in-between events that only your words can express!
