Crayon Resist Photo Message


Make a creative and personal gift for Mom or Dad.

  • 1.

    Cut a piece of heavy paper to fit into a plastic box frame.

  • 2.

    Use a white Crayola® Crayon to write a message to Mom or Dad.

  • 3.

    Paint the paper with Crayola Washable Watercolors. Watch as the paint resists the crayon and your message stands out. Do the same on another piece of paper to create decorative touches like hearts or smiley faces. Set aside to dry.

  • 4.

    Find a photo of yourself that you like and cut yourself out with Crayola Scissors. Glue the cut-out photo onto the painted paper along with the hearts.

  • 5.

    Place the decorated paper into the box frame. Add additional messages around the frame with Crayola Washable Window Markers.
