Ziplock Painting

Going through a box of old stuff, we came across our beloved Etch A Sketch. Who doesn’t have fond memories about the fun and forgiving drawing device?
This week we decided to build a homemade Etch A Sketch using a ziplock bag. Our goal with this project is to teach children how to turn common household objects into fun and engaging creative tools.
