  • 1.

    With Crayola® Scissors cut out one wide panel of a large paper grocery bag. Fold the bottom up about half of the way. Glue sides with a Crayola Glue Stick to create a folder.

  • 2.

    Cut away the sides of one or more recycled foam produce trays to make printing blocks (the images will print in reverse). With a plastic knife, carve your favorite symbols onto the tray bottoms. What are your interests? Sports? Butterflies? Music? Draw designs that best illustrate you as a person. Carve your name if you like.

  • 3.

    Spread newspaper over your work area. Pour Crayola Washable Kid's Paint into another produce tray and spread it evenly. Press your carved printing block evenly in the paint. Press the block print onto the folder to decorate. Dry. Print with your other blocks, in different colors, if you wish. Dry.
