Drawing on Mirrors

It's Scott from Brick by Brick. I love to repurpose materials—use materials in ways different from their intended purpose.

We love to draw. We draw on paper and on paper plates. We draw at the easel. We draw with pens and pencils and markers and crayons. We draw with dry erase markers.

We love to use the small dry erase boards to write and draw. But we recently used mirrors as the surface for drawing.

Small hand mirrors are easily acquired at discount stores or the dollar store. We used our regular dry erase markers and erasers.

We write and draw just like on the dry erase boards - circles and loops and designs.

We can also draw "on" our faces (the reflection not the actual faces!).

The reflection gives a different dimension to what we are drawing or writing.

Plus it's just fun to do it!

You can also draw on a large stand-up mirror or a large mirror on the table, floor, or ground outside!

Visit my Dollar Store and Dumpster Pinterest Board and my blog for more repurposing ideas.


  1. Love this idea! Would be great during the All About Me unit! We love dry erase markers, but have never used them in this way! Thanks for the idea!


  2. So simple and so effective.... this offers so many opportunities to engage your minds!


We would love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave a comment below....
