Here's a fantastic drawing craft that's also a recycling craft — drawing on the un-printed side (the inside) of small medicine and food packaging to create a cityscape of buildings. The results of my seven year old's efforts were so amazing that I haven't decided if I want to frame them as is, or assemble them as buildings as originally planned.
As you can see, he remembered the topiary and roman shades that he learned to draw for the depiction of our house, which I shared with you last week, and then his efforts after that were much more abstract and geometric, which I just love. He didn't quite understand that the tabs and flaps wouldn't be seen, which is why I'm not sure whether to assemble them, as some of his art would be lost. We'll see!
All the work was done here with a fine black permanent marker for the initial drawing, and the filling in was done with regular kid-safe colored markers. A great combination and the colors look so great on white, of course.
Oh and that little orange Dutch style building on the lower left is my effort, as I did sit with my son for a bit to encourage his efforts, which are so much more exciting and creative than mine!
