(Crafts) Melted Crayon Art


Here is a new use for all the broken crayons you have lying around: melted crayon art!

Supplies:
Crayons
Paper
Candle

Directions:
Peel the paper off of the crayons. Light the candle and hold a crayon above the flame for 2-3 seconds or until it starts to melt. Then quickly move the crayon over the paper. The child can choose to do a drip collage (picture below) or press the crayon onto the paper to draw a picture of their choice.

*Tip – Set aside a small jar, box, or bag that is dedicated to storing your broken crayons. This keeps your main crayon box tidy and saves your broken crayons for this fun rainy day craft!

    This is a great idea! I will be using this one for my son’s upcoming birthday which will be crayon themed. Thanks!
