After practice, give kids choices of dark construction paper. I let them use construction paper crayons (or possible oil pastels for older kids). 









Rules;
1. Start with basic steps lightly
2. Get shapes and size right
3. Draw in details darker
4. Create a night atmosphere for background. 
5. Use colors that emphasize the owl and contrast from background paper color.

  1. Hi there! I just 'discovered' your blog via a post I saw on Pinterest and I am thrilled with your beautiful ideas! Just a quickie: what are 'construction paper crayons'? Are they different from 'regular' wax crayons? I am not in the US, so just need to understand what to look for here on the other side of the world :-)

  2. Yay for new discoveries! Thanks for peeking in. I LOVE construction paper crayons.
    They are designed to be used on darker color paper. With normal crayons,
    Sometimes when you have purple paper for instance, you use a yellow crayon and it looks brown. Construction paper crayons eliminates that mix and glides on the paper over the dark. It only comes in a limited amount of colors, but it is the colors you need that will cover. Crayola makes them. Have fun!
