Texture Rubbings

This project is perfect for any age at all!

Step# 1- Look all around the house fun things with texture, I used a basket, a rug, a place mat, a tile, wood and a boot tray. Have fun on the hunt!


Step#2-Use the side of a crayon and sketchbook paper to rub over the texture. Cover completely.

Step#3- Paint over the rubbings using watercolors. Let dry.

  • Use the texture rubbing as backgrounds for drawings
  • Fold them and staple together to make a book
  • Laminate them and use as place mats
  • Frame the best one
  • Cut the textures into geometric shapes and make a collage
  • Layout cut similar sized shapes to form a paper quilt
