Hi, I’m Pam on behalf of Expert Village and
today I’m going to show you different art projects for kids. Here’s something fun that
you can do with your kids while again, using things that you can find around the house.
Take a piece of sandpaper. Now what you can do is you can cut this sandpaper into various
shapes, hearts, if you’re really crafty you can do like underwater things like sea creatures
or planes. But you want to give kids crayons and have them color on the sandpaper. Now
the harder that they press with the crayons or the more they color over any spot, the
better. You want to definitely get the crayon in there. They can use as many different colors
as they want. Then, while you’re doing this, you want to have an iron nearby that’s heating
up and getting nice and hot. Then, you want to take the sandpaper, lay it face down with
the colored side on just your white paper, regular paper, anything, and you want to go
over it with a warm iron. Now the thinner the sandpaper, the better your picture is
going to turn out because it will heat up quicker. Just go over it, the more you go
over it, the more the color is going to set it. Like I said, the thinner the sandpaper,
the better that this is going to work out. And when you’re done, you just lift up the
sand paper and your picture will appear on your paper.
