White paper, crayon with the paper peeled off, paintbrush
Next time you and your child visit a new city, try this fun technique when out in the streets. You need paper, a paintbrush and a crayon, with paper removed. Have child select a texture he'd like to capture, such as a manhole cover or a plaque by a statue. Use the paintbrush to gently brush away any dirt and then have your child place the paper over the object. Hold the paper firmly in place while your child rubs the peeled crayon back and forth over the paper, capturing the texture underneath. Have your child sign and date his/her paper when done.
