Melting Crayons is a great way to involve kids in making artwork that you can actually hang on walls in a playroom and be proud of it. To make it more interesting than just having melted Crayons I combined my art and left the melting part to the kids. Using clay, paper and paint I made an umbrella and Winnie the Pooh with Tigger . I glued them to the canvas making sure there are no spots for Crayons to go under the umbrella. How to melt Crayons is probably not a secret to any of you. Kids put Crayons in order, we glued them to the canvas and melted them using a hairdryer. Just remember to do be prepared for a BIG mess!
