Sophie and I have been working through our summer list with only two and a half short weeks left until school starts. Last week we decided to work on a craft project that involved a canvas, crayons, glue and a hairdryer. If you’ve been on Pinterest, you may have seen this project before. It’s essentially melted Crayon Art on a canvas.
First go to Target or wherever back-to-school supplies are on sale and buy a package of crayons. This craft is actually perfect this time of the year since the crayons are on sale for close to 99-cents wherever you go. Also pick up a canvas from Michael’s or a craft store.
I personally would have arranged the colors in a rainbow fashion. But it was Sophie’s project and she chose this style. Let the crayons harden onto the canvas (about 20 minutes). Then grab your hairdryer and go outside.
A word of caution: If you are doing this craft on bricks or a surface that your husband/spouse/partner created, put down a cloth or newspaper first. No matter how pretty the art turns out, said person may not be very happy with hardened crayon wax on the bricks. I’m just saying …
