Use this as a craft you can hang in your window or make it as a card for a special friend.

1. waxed paper

2. wax crayons (Cheap crayons work best)Picture1

3. manual pencil sharpener (with a fairly large hole)

4. iron, ironing board and scrap paper (white computer paper or brown paper bag)

5. construction paper

6. scissors

7. glue stick

  • ADULT:  Plug in the iron and cover the ironing board with scrap paper.  Set the iron to medium (no steam).
  • Tear a piece of waxed paper a bit longer than it is wide and fold it in half.  Then unfold to reveal the crease.
  • Remove paper from crayons and ‘sharpen’ them in the pencil sharpener.  Let the shavings drop onto half of the waxed paper.
  • Feel free to use a variety of colors.
  • When you have a pile of shavings refold the waxed paper.
  • Fold a half inch around all the edges so none of the wax leaks out while ironing.
  • Place the waxed paper containing the shavings down on the ironing board and cover with more scrap paper.
  • Iron for about 10 seconds.  Peek and iron a bit more if necessary.  All the wax should melt.  The longer you iron, the more your colors will mix.
  • Let sit about 30 seconds to cool.
