Fall Crayon Transfers


We gave a fall twist to the crayon "copy paper" concept, by coloring the back of fall-themed coloring sheets with stripes of red, orange, yellow, and brown crayon colors...


...then turning the sheet over, so the colored side was on top of a blank sheet of paper, and the coloring sheet design was facing up, ready to be traced with a pencil...


...then removed, to reveal...



...the colorful copy on the blank page underneath.


The sheets can be used more than once.  My girls traced their pictures, and then wrote words, and drew free form pictures over the coloring sheet design, on fresh sheets of paper, until the colors wore out.

Oh, I love this idea, I've done this by accident several times.

Me too, with the accident thing, Ticia!
It's such a lovely thing to celebrate the seasons like you do - you are creating such lovely memories for your children. I'm hoping to do something at Christmas and actually take a break from history and immerse ourselves in all thing Christmas
