How To Make End Of Year Scratch Off Cards

Scratch-Off Cards are so much fun!

First off, who doesn’t like a scratch-off card? We all want to know what is the hidden message underneath the scratch-off. 

There are many ways that you can use scratch-off cards in your classroom. 

You can create:

  • Reward Cards
  • Class Lottery Cards
  • Hidden Message Cards

It’s so much fun for students!

In this post, I will walk you through how to make Scratch Off Cards for your students as an End-Of-Year student gift. 

I like to add this to my End-Of-Year Student Gift Bags. I think it’s such a cute way of letting the students know how much and why you will miss them when you say goodbye at the end of the school year.

Alright, here we go! First these are the materials that you will need:

Step 1: Make The Paint

Mix the acrylic paint with the dish soap. You need 2 parts paint and 1 part soap. I typically do 1 teaspoon of paint and half a teaspoon of soap.

It’ll look watery, and that’s perfect!

Step 2: Prepare the Cards

Prepare the cards! You can print out the messages or write them straight down onto the cards.

Step 3: Create A Waxy Barrier

Color in the messages with a white crayon. The wax from the crayon will help separate your messages from the paint and protect them during the scratching. This is probably the most important step! So, color away!

Step 4: Hide Your Messages

Paint over your messages with the paint mix you created earlier. If you use a darker color, you will have to do at least 2 layers of paint to fully hide your messages. If you are using a lighter color, you will typically need to do 3 to 4 layers.

Now, all you have to do is just wait for it to dry!
