I LOVE making melted crayon art with the boys. We made these super fun fall leaves in September, and I thought it was high time to get out the crayons again.
Cover your skillet with foil (you'll thank me later), and heat it to 200 - 250 degrees. I remind the boys repeatedly that it's hot, and I make sure they have long sleeves on to protect their arms.
Bring out your crayons, minus the wrappers. I only provided red, pink, and white since those are the colors I wanted them to use. A was a little miffed at first but he got over it. Note: white didn't show up, though I want to try using white on colored paper...
I pre-cut a big stack of hearts in a variety of sizes. I've found that lower weight paper works best as it allows the liquid to soak through and gives you a better stained glass effect. Once everything is set up, have fun creating!
Something about swooshing the melting crayons around on the paper is SO much fun!
We'll be sending out a few to special valentines
Some of mine
Love the texture of these, I can't wait to get them up
Aren't they wonderful!?
