Smudged Chalk Galaxy Art

This was a really fun activity that the mini monsters really enjoyed, there is something about chalk that means kids, or mine at least, just want to explore the effects that they can make. Smudged chalk art is great for making a galaxy effect on black paper.

Smudged chalk makes a really cool galaxy effect. Why not give it a try.

What you need:
Black paper or card

This is a really simple activity to set up and to do, it was a good one for Elsie who currently loves drawing circles, and for Jenson who loves to test things out and see what he can do with them.

To get the galaxy effect, draw circles and smudge, with tissue (our choice) or a sponge or even your fingers, and layer up your colours until you are happy with your finished design.

We finished of our pictures with some of the props form our Galaxy Sensory Bin glued on!

What do you think? Will you give it a try?
