Transparent Triumph

Here's a fun drawing activity that will entertain your child and foster her creativity.


  1. Newspaper
  2. Drawing paper
  3. Black felt marker
  4. Crayons
  5. Oil baby or cooking
  6. Rags


On the drawing paper, have your child outline a design or picture with the black marker. Color in parts of it with the crayons. Turn the drawing over and lay it face down on the newspaper. With the rag, rub oil on the back of the drawing paper. It will become instantly transparent. Hang the artwork in the window so the light can shine through.
