I love to collect textures to make rubbings, but in the past I've always found it to be frustrating for young children. However, by chance I discovered two changes to my usual method that makes it infinitely easier for them. First of all, instead of using a lightweight paper I switched to tracing paper. This way, when they place a texture beneath the paper they are able to see exactly where they should rub. Secondly, I switched from crayons to very soft oil pastels, and as always, I recommend that they use they broad side of the pastel as opposed to the point. The oil pastels are richer and have more "pop" than a traditional crayon.
