Sand Paper Art

This is a very simple, but very effective way to make a drawing that looks like it came right off the walls of an Egyptian tomb.

• Piece of coarse sandpaper (we used a 4inch x 6inch (ish) piece, but you could use whatever size you like)
• Crayons

1. Draw an Egyptian scene on the sandpaper with crayons (A pyramid landscape works well)
2. If you draw Egyptian people, remember that they are always drawn as if the body is facing towards you and the head is turned to the side.
3. Press hard on the crayons
