Value Colors

For our Laurel Class activity this week we made Crayon Art. The girls all did so well and they turned out soooo cute. We thought it would be a fun thing for the girls to display at Evening of Excellence. Michaels has a 10-pack (8x10 canvases) for $19.99.  I used a 50% off coupon making them $1.00 Each. Because it is back to school time most stores have crayons on sale! We found ours at Walmart 
they were $0.50 for a 24 pack. Total cost $1.50
Such a cute craft to showcase the YW value colors!

1- layout pattern of crayons
2- Hot glue gun crayons to canvas
3- We placed our canvas in a cardboard box in case the crayon splattered. Put it upright with a slight angle so the wax can melt down.
4- With hair dryer on HOT and LOW setting hold about 4'' away from crayons keeping hairdryer in motion across small section of crayons. 
5- Crayons start to melt. Melt to desired pattern or look.

 You can find a million tutorials on youtube! It was a quick, easy, and fun activity.
