We did a crayon resist project. We wrote the children's names with white crayon on white paper so the did not even see it was there. Then we gave them water colors and told them to paint all over the paper to see the surprise. They were very excited to find their names appear. We then gave them a sheet of white paper and a white crayon so they could draw their own design that appeared when they water colored on top of it.
