Homeschool Art: The Melted Crayon Project

You know the project.  Odds are if you are on Pintrest, you have it pinned to a board.  Lately, its been circling the blogosphere.  We finally had the chance to do it.  And while its "fun" there is also a lot of learning that can take place during this activity.  Teachable moments include:

Start to finish it took a little more than an hour.  The supplies for each child cost us $3 at Michael's.  Here's how to do it:

Supplies:  One box of 60 Crayons, One canvas (14x10 approx), hot glue gun, hair dryer

Step One:  Take small sections of crayons and put them into color order.  Add small sections of crayons to the color-ordered group. 

Step Two:  Hot glue crayons onto canvas.

Step Three:  Experiment with hairdryer at different heights, distances, and speeds to achieve the type of melting that your child wants most.  Experiment with layering by heating and cooling newly melted wax.
