Activity – Hidden World

As Shakespeare put it, “There are more things in heaven and on earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Hamlet (1.5) This activity illustrates that there is more to this world than we can see.scratch art

You will need scratch-art card, either rectangles or crosses. This is available from craft stores or you can make your own. Cover white card all over with wax crayon in different colours. Then paint over with a thick mixture of black acrylic paint and washing up liquid, and leave it to dry.

Give out the card and some chalk. You can write or draw on the black card and that’s fine, but there is so much more that you can’t see. Give out cocktail sticks / toothpicks and and let people scrape away the black top coat to reveal the colourful layer behind it. This is what the card is really all about, if only we have eyes and to see it.
