Pencil shavings.

I remember doing this activity when I was a child. The way you can blend colours on a paper allows you to get a soft and gentle background. And not to mention the joy of children using their little fingers to paint :)
How to do it: sharpen your pencils on a paper keeping every leftover.
If you know what colours and where you want to use - sharpen each colour over the area you will want to colour.
Then take all the big pieces aside for later. With your finger start to rub tiny pieces of pencil into the paper.
Once the background is done - you can use leftover shavings and create some design over the coloured paper! We made these pretty flowers :)
