What you will need is:
- old crayons
- waxed paper
- a clothes iron
- Prep: take crayons and make them into a fine shavings. A crayon shaperner is the easiest way to do this.
- I usually separate the colors into little paper cups or and old egg carton.
- Give each child a piece of waxed paper and fold it in half so there is a crease.
- Have child sprinkle crayon shavings on one half of the paper. Don’t let shavings get to close the edge. Allow a margin of around an inch.
- When finished have an adult carefully fold the paper along the crease and place on a heat safe surface.
- Cover the paper with a towel and iron over it on the cotton setting.
- Remove towel. The crayon shavings should have melted into something resembling stained glass.
- Let paper cool before lifting it. It could burn you or the wax can run out the edges.
- The paper can now be trimmed out and a hanger added.
- Hang in a window or a sunny spot. Keep out of a very warm place so the wax won’t re-melt.
