Crayon rubbings are so much fun because it almost feels like the image “magically” appears. It is a great way to use those broken crayons and is a great tactile sensory activity for those little ones who crave tactile exploration.

What you will need:
Place a piece of paper on top of leaves or a surface with a great texture. Construction paper will be too thick so chose a thinner paper like ordinary printer paper or even notebook paper. Remove the paper from the crayon if it is still on there. Turn the crayon sideways and gently rub.
