How to Make a Crayon Resist Christmas Stocking
This is one of the coolest and yet easiest art activities for kids. You don’t need many materials and they love seeing how the crayon and watercolor interact. All you need for this craft is watercolors, a white crayon and my stocking template.

For personal use only.
First step is to print the stocking template. You can use any paper your printer will take but if you want it to be sturdier use card stock. Then use the white crayon to draw any design or shapes on the stocking. Last step is to paint the stocking using watercolors. Use any color you like or use them all. The beauty of this craft is it’s completely customizable and kids can really make it their own.
That’s it, the stocking is complete! If you want to hang them up, cut it out and add a piece of paper to the back of the top. I cut a small piece of construction and glued it to the back to look like a loop. Makes it seem more realistic and I can hang up my kids’ stockings for display!
I hope you love this idea and try it with your kids. If you’re a teacher, this is great to do with your students before winter break for the holidays. If you recreate this craft share it on social media and tag me so I can see it! Find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
