This little project was all about line exploration with oil pastel and watercolor. It is easy, fun, and allows for a lot of individual interpretation and therefore a wide variety of finished products. When every child ends up with a piece of art uniquely theirs you know you have a winner!
Chalk pastels are vibrant, dusty sticks of super blendable color- which makes them perfect for young artists! This unique technique combines dried glue outlines that give a little structure to bold and bright chalk pastels colors!
We like a good craft at my house. Even better when it uses natural (free materials), has impressive results and comes together in only a few minutes. These acorn necklaces made with baked marbles fit the bill!!
One of the best things about this project is your kids will be able to do almost all the work themselves (minus removing the pan from the oven) and they will have some sweet little gifts to bestow upon their people!
