Make an Impression

ages 3-6


Coin, pencil, piece of paper

Activity Detail

Lay a piece of paper over a coin, credit card, or key and rub a pen or pencil (pencil works better) back & forth over the surface to reveal what lies beneath. Kids love this game and think it's magic when the image appears on the paper. This activity is great for restaurants!

This activity is a classic, but I love the suggestion of incorporating it while dining out with the kids. We dine out regularly and our son has developed quite a bit of patience waiting for his food to arrive, but for those off nights, I think this could come in handy!

Thanks for the idea. I'm always looking for ways to keep my kids entertained at restaurants. I bet there are other things in my diaper bag that work, too, like keys.
