Supplies: All you need is a piece of colored paper, a pencil, a push pin, and a small cardboard box to use as a work surface.
Directions: Have your child lightly sketch a simple design on the piece of colored paper. Taking the cardboard box, turn it over and use the bottom as a work surface. Place the paper on the box. Using the push pin, begin making small pin prick holes along the penciled lines.
When all the pencil lines have been pricked, hold your creation up to the sunlight and enjoy seeing your design "light up" with sunshine!
Some ideas for simple outlines:
- smiley face
- stick figure family
- constellations (works great on black paper - use chalk to write constellation names next to your creation)
- city skyline (looks really cool on black paper)
- person silhouette (especially side profile of the head)
