Space Art Crayon Resist

{Space Craft for Kids}

Over the summer, The Crafting Chicks did several week-long themes of posts with kid craft and snack ideas. I signed up for Space Week and created this tutorial for a space kid craft.  

You just need a few supplies:
Crayons (name brand works best)
White cardstock
Black water color or watered down craft paint
Paper towels

Start by coloring a space scene on the cardstock. Stars, planets, shooting stars, rockets, aliens, etc. Color them in completely with the crayons.

Brush over the whole paper with the black water color. The waxy crayon won't absorb the paint and it beads up a little.  

Pat with a paper towel to clean off paint that beads up on the crayon.

Let dry, and display your beautiful space picture. 

I love how Asher's turned out! Notice how he used a white crayon to make the moon?

I hope you'll have fun with this space craft! To go along  it, you could also make this bright and colorful planet mobile
