Perfect Little Abstracts: Melted Crayon Art.

Creamy natural crayons + warm surfaces = melty lusciousnesss

All you need is a warming tray, paper, foil and natural soy crayons.
First wrap foil over the warming tray and set it to LOW.
When it’s warm, draw with crayons to your heart’s content.

Then press paper gently over the melted wax.
Use a rolling pin to evenly soak up the wax and lift off warming tray with tongs.
Safety Note: Watch your child’s fingers, and don’t touch the foil or the warming tray

Enjoy your abstract expressions!
What children learn: The properties of materials and how they work (warm, melted, liquid, solid) ; printmaking (mirror images), color mixing, self-expression and discovery.
