Materials:

  • Paper
  • Black marker
  • Ruler

In pencil, draw a Humpty Dumpty that fills most of the paper. Then using a ruler and pencil, all across the paper, draw 4 or 5 straight lines, at different angles, dividing Humpty Dumpty in unequal sections.

Now, go over the pencil lines with heavy black marker. Color each section differently.
