Time

  • 10 to 15 minutes

Materials

  • Paper
  • Empty roll-on deodorant bottles

Directions

  1. This activity provides a whole new experience with drawing tools. Pry off the bottle lids and wash the parts thoroughly.

Extensions

  • Tape paper to the floor and color from a kneeling position.
