They also add color and add a charming look around their writing.

Bordered Paper

For all of my writing classes, students write on bordered paper.  That way they can decorate the border around their writing with an art accent.  You can print and use this paper as well.  Here is the paper for Grades K-2 and Grades 2-7.  Here’s a printout of a border with no lines to use with very early writers.

Crayon and Watercolor Paint

3. Use white crayon and red watercolor paint.

First, draw eggs around the border using a WHITE CRAYON.

It’s important to press somewhat firmly (without breaking the crayon) to make solid lines.  In the image below, I drew eggs with black pen to show the students what to draw with their white crayon.

Then, paint over it with purple, pink, yellow or orange watercolor paint. Use whatever color you’d like your eggs to be!  The white crayon shows through.

Glitter Glue

4. Use any color glitter glue on any color of marker.

First, use a marker to color the border.  Use glitter glue to draw eggs around the border. Allow 12-24 hours for the glitter glue to dry completely.

I used purple marker and pink glitter glue. The image is dark. The actual page is nice.

5. Add a little glitter pattern to the eggs drawn with marker. Place the story in a flat plastic container. Use Elmer’s glue wherever you would like the glitter to stick. Shake the glitter onto the spots of glue.

Shake the loose glitter off of the paper and into the container. Take the story out of the container and lay flat to dry.

Calendar Pictures

6. Use a calendar picture of flowers, chicks, goats, bunnies, what have you, to accompany a student’s story.
