This project is a perfect way for kids to help make gifts for their parents. You can let their imaginations run wild with an expo marker in hand. Then, transform their doodles into prints that will last for years!
My niece and I had just as much fun making this project as we did giving it to her dad for his birthday. She especially loved watching the print develop in the sun! Prior to the tutorial, I asked her to draw a nice picture that we would make into a simple pillow. A baby and daddy dinosaur is what she came up with -- so cute!
All you need for this project is Inkodye
, a glass plate (I got mine from a picture frame) and a black Expo marker. I recommend using Expo brand markers specifically because they block sunlight really well (you could also use a transparency instead of a glass plate).
