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.
