Today you'll need white paper, dark colored crayons, and a hard surface to color on.
Encourage your child to find flat items in the house or outside (leaves, fabric, coins, keys, etc.).
Put the item under the white paper and rub over it with the crayon until a picture appears.
For Younger children:
You can do the activity but they might be more interested in manipulating the crayon, eating the paper, or exploring the object.
**DO NOT LEAVE CHOKE-SIZED ITEMS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN**
For Older Children:
Try rubbings using more abstract items--walls, shower curtain, drains, cold air return grates, etc.
