Crayon Engraving

Yesterday we talked about how the Romans used wax tabletsto write on instead of paper. The suggested activity was to make crayon engravings.

First we colored a sheet of paper

Then we painted over them...
(We were supposed to use black paint, but I didn't have any so I just made dark blue.)
After the paint dried, we used a unfolded paper clip to engrave in the paint

Luke made a birthday card for PawPaw

Here's the heart that he drew as well

I made this card for PawPaw from Miriam, Levi & Micah
