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 art boards with simple zentangle-like patterns, and 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, following directions, and attention to detail, Djeco Bugs includes four generously-sized scratch templates, one scratch tool sized for little hands, and a full-color pictorial instruction booklet filled with inspiring design ideas. Djeco Scratch Boards kits will boost both your child’s fine motor and visual discernment skills.

”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).”Read the Review

”Kids do not have to do everything exactly like the picture instructions but it has suggestions and great ideas for them to use and my kids loved that.”Read the Review
These were a simple craft but kept my kids busy for a little while. They were a cute addition to the curriculum kit but definitely not necessary. My kids did love them!
These are simple but fun! My daughter really enjoyed doing them!!
We’ve used Melissa and doug’s version of these, so she already loved the concept of scratch cards. I should have rationed these because she did them all in a day!
I probably enjoy this more than my child. Simple art craft to add to your program.
I got this as a birthday present for my niece and son. My niece seemed pretty happy to get it. I'm still not sure if my son would like it, but I can always save it as a project for my daughter in a couple years.
