This melted crayon art project results in a picture that swirls around to become a kaleidoscope of colors, and the bumpy surface makes a wonderful texture too!
What You'll Need:
- Handled pencil sharpener
- Waxed paper
- Kitchen or bath towel
- Iron and ironing board
- Hot pad or oven mitt
- Blunt scissors
- Needle and thread
HOW TO MAKE A MELTED CRAYON ART PROJECT:
Step 1: Twist old crayons in a small hand-held pencil sharpener to make shavings. Spread them on a sheet of waxed paper, and place another sheet on top.
Step 2: Cover your "sandwich" with a towel. With an adult's help, iron it until the crayons are melted.
Step 3: Remove the towel, and use a hot pad or oven mitt to smooth over the waxed paper. This will spread the crayons, mixing the colors together.
Step 4: After the crayons have cooled, cut the waxed paper into a flower, a star, an apple, or any shape you want.
