Supplies Needed For This Super Cute Mad Scientist Kids Craft
Ready to get started on this mad scientist line study? Here’s what you’ll need.
- Construction Paper (or cardstock)
- Fine Tip Black Marker
- Crayons, Markers or Colored Pencils
Start by getting your supplies ready and downloading the free mad scientist printable. Get your little one to draw straight lines in each section of the printable using a fine tip black marker.
If your toddler isn’t old enough to do this himself, you can help him out.
Ask him to fill up each section of the image, except for the scientist’s eyes and his coat.
It’s time to add some color and life into it folks! Get the crayons and color pencils out and ask your little one to fill it up with the right colors (or rather any colors he prefers). The basic idea is to let him explore his creative side and do whatever he wants to- rather than stick to particular constraints.
It is best to avoid using watercolor and paints for this project, since using those will get the ink from the marker to smear and ruin the sheet.
And that’s it! This easy art project is perfect for those lazy afternoons where you want to keep your kid busy but don’t want to spend a whole lot of time setting things up.
