Scratch-art is a type of engraving where an artist scratches through dark ink to uncover a colored layer beneath. Now French company Djeco has taken scratch art to a whole new level with these original display-worthy designs. Follow the directions and embellish parts of the creative scratch artboards with simple zentangle-like patterns. In other places, larger areas of the boards are scratched off to reveal hidden surprises.
Djeco Bugs is an excellent introduction to this unique craft and includes cute insects. A perfect way for kindergartners to practice patterns, follow directions, and pay attention to detail, Djeco Bugs includes:
Four generously-sized scratch templates.
One scratch tool sized for little hands.
A full-color pictorial instruction booklet filled with inspiring design ideas.
Djeco Scratch Boards kits will boost your child’s fine motor and visual discernment skills.
Note: Each Djeco booklet includes examples of other works by the same artist who designed the kit. Depending on the artist, these other works may be whimsical, quirky, or dark. Parents may wish to preview the booklet to remove or cover any troubling pages.
This kit includes 4 artboards, each taking 30-60 minutes to complete.
4 generously-sized scratch templates
1 scratch tool sized for little hands
Full-color pictorial instruction booklet filled with inspiring design ideas

review by Laura Noelle
”We have enjoyed these scratch boards and I think they are a worthwhile investment for enriching learning skills... I appreciate that it’s an art project that is low-mess and doesn’t require my assistance (just general supervision for young children).”
