For this project you will need:

pens
Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2
white cardstock
glue gun
glue sticks
crayons
white typing paper

*If you don’t own a Cricut machine, you could also just use coloring book pages or clip art you find online. Just make sure the drawings are pretty simple & easy to trace.*

I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to draw these images on white cardstock. If you DO own a Cricut machine, you can access the Design Space file I used right here >>>>> Crayon Rubbing Drawing File. (If you haven’t used the pens to draw with your Cricut machine before, you can see how I did that right here when I made these cute Halloween Coloring Cards last year.) :)

Once you’ve decided on your images, let me show you how easy it is to turn them into crayon rubbings. The first thing you do is carefully outline your image using hot glue.

Let dry! Annnnnnnd that’s it! ha!

Now your kiddos can have some fun. Just put white typing paper over the top & rub with a crayon. It’s fun to watch the designs appear. It will keep your kiddos entertained for hours. :)
