Nature Rubbings

You will need:

  1. A piece of paper
  2. A textured object from the Nature Resere (something like a leaf or a piece of bark will be perfect)
  3. A soft pencil or crayon

Place your piece of paper over the object.

Using your pencil or crayon, gently scribble across the paper until you see the pattern of your object.

Ta – Da! watch your pattern emerge through the paper.

Why not trying using lots of different objects and colours of crayon to create a beautiful colourful design.

Soon there will be special rubbing posts placed on a nature trail up on the reserve.
