Step 1: No Worries Stones
Clean off rocks. Set the oven to 225 degrees and bake your rocks for 15 minutes on a foil-lined cookie sheet.
Step 2: No Worries Stones
While rocks are baking, remove the paper wrappers from the old crayons.
Step 3: No Worries Stones
With an adult’s help, use an oven mitt to remove the rocks from the stove and set them on a pad of newspapers. The rocks will be VERY HOT, so be careful!
Step 4: No Worries Stones
Draw on the stones with the crayons. The heat will melt the crayons into a vibrant liquid wax. For a swirl effect, hold each crayon against the rock in one place to create a puddle of color. Use a toothpick to swirl the color around. After the rock cools, use a marker to write on it.
