Resist art is wonderful for artists of all ages. From toddlers to adults, it is simple and fun to do. We have used tape, oil, White-out and cardboard to make resist art in the past, but crayon resist I think may be my favorite to do.

These crayon resist hearts are perfect for Valentine’s Day and could easily be made into homemade cards.

As you probably already know if you follow us regularly, my little girl has a voracious appetite for books. Our bedtime story time keeps getting longer & longer. We have exhausted all of our books. She knows them all by heart now. That’s why we were so excited to receive a one month subscription to Story Box. When the box arrived, the books were nicely wrapped & included a parent guide with a breakdown of different age groups & how you could apply them to learning for that age. It also included a list of age appropriate activities for each story. The best part is the books are yours to keep.
The two books that we received were ‘Outside’ & ‘Go to Sleep, Little Farm.’
They were both an immediate hit with my daughter. She loved both books, but she really fell in love with ‘Go to Sleep, Little Farm’. I did as well. It was like being in a dream. We often take craft inspiration from books we read & we did just that with this one. We made our own DIY scratch cards & etched out our own dream-like scenes.
What you will need:
Black Tempura Paint
Card Stock (we used 4.5X6.5)
Small Paint Roller or Large Paint Brush
Color the card stock in with the crayons.
Mix equal parts tempura paint & dish soap in a container. Brush the paint over the top of the crayon & let dry. I was impatient & used a hair dryer. Once dry, use a toothpick to scratch of the black paint.
My daughter adored this craft. We made a pile of them to set aside for later.
