Discover My Name in the Night Sky

Estimated read time 2 min read

This weeks virtual book club is all about the night. We did a super easy activity and discovered our name while adding a bit of painting.

As always check the bottom of this post for more themed ideas for the night. This weeks featured book is Time for Bed.

This activity uses the process of crayon resist art.

Items you will need:

  • White wax crayon
  • Sheet of white paper
  • Black water paint

Draw on the white paper with your white wax crayon the images that you wish to show up.

I added a name, small stars and a crescent moon. These items are hard to see on the paper. I recommend drawing near a window so you can get better light to see what you have drawn.

Use your water paints in the color black to paint and reveal the name of the child! It is great fun discovering what is on the paper for the kids!

This activity is suited to toddlers as well as preschoolers! Crayon resist art is a ton of fun!
