For this art project we are making t shirt tote bags out of t shirts that you no longer have use for. The best part – there is no sewing involved.

For this project we are making scratch art out of household materials. Heads up – this project could get messy!
Materials: cardboard, crayons or oil pastels, black paint (acrylic of tempera), dish soap and toothpicks.
1. Color the piece of cardboard with crayons or oil pastels. Make sure to color the entire piece of cardboard. Use as many colors as you want in several different designs – do not use black or brown colors, as they will not show up when you scratch the cardboard.
2. Mix acrylic or tempera paint (black or white) with a drop of dish soap.
3. Brush the mixture over the crayon/oil pastel design. A little goes a long way, so brush a light coat over the design.
4. Let it dry for an hour.
5. Scratch your design!
