Did you know you probably have art supplies sitting in your toolbox? Sandpaper isn't just for woodworking--it's a fun drawing surface too! My daughters and I love to draw on sandpaper with leaves: The colors are brighter and more vibrant.
How We Did It
Collect some leaves and observe their shapes. Draw a leaf on a quarter sheet of sandpaper (approx. 4" x 5") with dark blue or black crayon. Don't forget to add the veins (those little lines in the middle of the leaf)!
