The kids and I did a craft today that I thought I'd share. It was a tad bit messy, but it kept the three of us entertained for an hour so it's a winner in my book.
"Stained Glass" Art
What you need:
veggie peeler (or cheese grater, or knife)
iron (for mom, obviously) - set to low
protective surface - newspaper or table cloth
dixie cups (optional!)
What to do:
Put an OLD table cloth or newspaper down to protect your table!
1. Take wrapper off crayon
2. Shave crayon to get little pieces for your masterpiece
yet another use for dixie cups!!!
3. Spread crayon flakes on wax paper (less is more, I found this out the ugly/hard way)
4. Cover with second piece of wax paper & iron on LOW
5. Optional: you can also cut scraps of paper to make a frame.
