Cool Doodle!

I know, I know, this is a doodle, but I think it is just so cool that I wanted to share here too.

The fun part is that ZERO talent is required and there's some potential there for really cool ideas!

As usual, I got the original idea from Pinterest link  from "The Forest Room" .  A teacher had gotten her kids to trace around their hands then take a marker and draw straight until you get to the line then
"bump" over it until you get to the other side and go straight again, like I did below.

Isn't that COOL!?!  I just love it!  Art teachers are so smart!  

If you notice, it looks like I got darker on the pencil lines, but the marker did that, I didn't...not on purpose anyway...it happened mainly where I stopped (hesitated) and started drawing straight again.  Happy fluke.

So anyway, you see how far I got with my hand before I decided to move on to the name.  I quick drew "JESUS" and started the markers moving ....

I think it would be great to get kids to do their own hand and/or name and frame it because it looks like so much more than it actually is to me.  Go check out what the kids did, I like theirs better!

  3. Oh, and, I'm sending this to my friend in the UK who assists with special needs kids in a church school. She's gonna love this. And you need to get this out to all the linky parties, this is perfect for keeping snowed-in kids happy.
