    So genius and so simple! Downwards stroke are something we are working on right now and I love this idea. Plus, it is raining here today so this will be a perfect activity. Love, love, love!

    My preschooler has not had much success with the pain resistant Crayon trick. She's not a Crayon person, but I can make the rain and let her paint. This is pretty cool.

    What a fun way to use crayon resist to capture the weather. The picture is really beautiful. We will have to make one!

    I love the pre-writing skills involved, as well as the art technique of crayon resist. 🙂 Another idea for the lesson plan book. Thanks! 🙂

    Great activity for preschool and prewriting, I've got to work on the pressure of my little one's marks do you have any tips?
