Today, we'll be making scratch cards. Whether it's for a raffle, a kids' birthday party or a fun game, these super scratch cards can be used for a whole host of activities...
1. Scratch Card
- small card
- adhesive tape
- acrylic paint
First, design small scratch cards with the images and message you want — let your creativity run wild. For this trick, you'll need to create winner and loser scratch cards. Use adhesive tape to cover areas of the card that shouldn't be painted over later. Next, mix some acrylic paint with some soap and apply the mixture to the area which needs to be scratched off. Once the paint has dried, give the scratch cards to friends and see who comes out on top!
2. Magic Scratch Book
- wax crayons
- black acrylic paint
- skewers or toothpicks
Use wax crayons to create a checkered design on each page of the notebook. Next, mix the black acrylic paint with soap and cover each page. Once the paint has dried, use a skewer or toothpick to write or draw pictures by scratching into the black paint.
3. Birthday Scratch Card
- homemade or store-bought birthday card
- acrylic paint
- adhesive film
Attach clear adhesive film to the card. Now place adhesive tape to the areas that won't be used as a scratch-off panel. Mix acrylic paint with soap and glitter. Apply the mixture to the area that is going to be scratched off. Once the paint has dried, remove the adhesive tape and the recipient can scratch away to reveal the secret message on their birthday card.
Everyone loves a creative birthday card and the scratching simply doubles the excitement! The scratch cards are great for secret lotteries at a party while the magic scratch book is true winner for creative kids. Have fun making them!
