From the name Andrea

Level: Primary, Junior
Grades: K-5 | Age: 5-11 yrs | Written by: Melisa McCurley
[Melisa is a homeschooling parent.]
Summary:

Students can turn their names into aliens and monsters.

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. Fold paper in half lengthwise and crease.
  2. Open back up and write your name in cursive (important) large enough to take up most of the paper. An adult can write it for the child if necessary.
  3. Trace the name heavily with chalk in a color that will show on the paper.
  4. Refold the paper on the crease and rub over the paper with the back of the spoon or a popsicle stick.
  5. Check inside to see if the name has transferred onto the other side of the sheet. If not, keep rubbing.
  6. Open sheet and trace name with black marker.
  7. Color in the resulting shapes with different colors. Usually there will be shapes that suggest eyes (maybe more than 2!) and antenna.

  8. Continue to add details to your alien.
  9. Make another one but this time turn it upside down and make the other end the head.
