  • Glue
  • Paper
  • Crayons
  • Small objects (i.e., paperclips, pipe cleaners, foam stickers, jewel stickers, buttons, etc)


  1. Collect materials for your rubbing plate. They can be any small object you can find.
  2. Arrange your objects on your piece of cardboard as you desire.
  3. Glue the objects to the sheet of cardboard. Be sure to give them time to dry!
  4. Place a piece of paper over your rubbing plate. Using crayons, colour on the piece of paper. Watch the different textures and lines appear!

Design a series of rubbing plates, and create your own gallery display showcasing the different products from each!
