Rubbings have been used for hundreds of years to capture the shape, texture and likeness of objects.

Any object with a raised texture works, like leaves, tree bark, coins, or tiles. Make a collage of leaves, a background of bark, or a graphic pattern of coins.

What you need:

  • Crayons
  • Paper
  • Raised texture objects

What you do:

  1. Place the leaf on a hard surface.
  2. Put a white sheet of paper on the leaf.
  3. Use a crayon on its side and gently rub over the leaf.
  4. Repeat this with other leaves.
