Melted Crayon Canvas

Found this idea on one of my favorite blogs that I follow.  So, of course, I had to make it with the kids!  And since the kids seem to be under the weather AGAIN, we are hanging low the weekend.

I bought some crayons. You need to use Crayola because I hear they are the only ones that work the best.  I hot glued them into a rainbow pattern on a piece of canvas.  Got the hair dryer out and started melting the crayons! 


The kids had fun watching the colors melt.  I will tell you that it took a long time for the colors to actually melt.  And of course I couldn’t get mine to look as cool as “Pink and Green Mama” did.  But oh well, it was still fun! 


I am going to try another canvas with black, white, and gray and see how that turns out.  Hopefully we’ll have some fun wall art for our new house someday!


Most importantly, the kids were proud of it!  And it does look neat in person!
