Project Instructions

Draw a shape onto cardstock, using a pencil.
Using a marker, draw a straight line across the paper until you reach the pencil outline of the shape. Make a curve from one line to the next (this will be the inside of your shape). Continue in a straight line on the outside of the shape.
Continue making lines until you've covered the area desired.
Go back and fill in with marker where needed.
If desired, cut out a favorite area and glue to black cardstock.

TIP: Use a simple shape for younger children.
