I get giddy during back to school season because I can buy boxes of crayons for 25 cents each.
I have to admit,
we never use our crayons to color.
I bring them home, unwrap them, and break them into tiny pieces,
the perfect size for melting!
Here are six different ways we've made art by melting crayons
This is a fun project because you can make whatever shape you'd like,
crayon shavings, wax paper, and an iron is all you need!
Hot glue your favorite colored crayons to the top of a foamcore board or canvas
and watch them melt with the help of a hair blow dryer.
Cover your griddle with tin foil and set it to low,
hand your child a crayon and let the magic happen!
Instead of dipping the your paintbrush into paint,
try dipping it into melted crayons instead!
Or save your brushes and use cotton swabs/balls...
Just like sticking your fingers into candle wax,
I KNOW you've done that!
Stick your fingers into the melted crayon, let it harden onto your fingertips and paint away
Want to see how else we've melted crayons?
after trying melted crayon art
how are you melting crayons in your house?
Save this idea for later!
