This art activity focuses on the shape of numbers. A good tie-in to math for younger students.

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. Choose a number (if working in a classroom situation, you might want to have children draw numbers out of a hat to avoid a class full of the same numbers).
  2. Draw the number on cardboard or poster board.
  3. The number should be large and bulky (not small and skimpy). Concentrate on the shape of the number.
  4. Cut the number out.
  5. Outline some fun designs on the number shape.
  6. Using markers or paint, fill in the designs.
