Simply print out the game and picture directions back-to-back, give them dice, and watch them have fun creating their own Navajo inspired painting.
You will create a Navajo sandpainting by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to put it together. After each roll, lightly draw the corresponding symbol on graph paper. Draw your shapes large to fill the space. Trace over all the lines until they’re heavy and dark. Flip the drawing face down onto the painting surface (canvas panel, cardboard, or heavy cardstock will work). Tape two sides down. With heavy pressure, scribble over the back of the paper until the design appears. Next, mix sand and tempra paint together using more paint than sand until it clings to the brush but slides off easily. Use sturdy bristle brushes and popsicle sticks to dab and push paint into place. Sandy paint dries quickly so only paint with one color at a time.
