Wait! Don’t toss those worn down crayons. Instead, give ‘em to the kids and let them make a colorful crayon art ornament. First, have children make shavings from them with a butter knife onto a piece of wax paper.
When they’re done, carefully take their creations to the ironing
board, lay another piece of wax paper on top, and briefly press
with a warm iron.
Let the kids watch as the colors melt together. Put them on the
table to cool down and harden.
Once they are hard the kids can cut them into different shapes
and you can punch a hole in the top and put a piece of ribbon
through, then they can hang them in their rooms, in the window,
wherever they would like and bring some color into their world
with creations they have made.
