Fun with oil pastels

Oil pastel crayons are my favorite of the art mediums! The colors are so vibrant and the colors transfer so easily that you can color longer without experiencing muscle fatigue.

I found a fun activity to try via kitchentableclassroom website so I thought my boy and I could give it a try!

What you’ll need: -Oil pastel crayons -Cotton swab -An oil (I used olive oil) -Thick paper (like resume paper or construction paper)

Step 1: choose your color(a) and apply a thick layer on the paper Step 2: Dab the cotton swab in the oil and spread it across the colors to blend and extend them Optional: use a toothpick to create a drawing inside your blended colors!
