We had so much fun with the last crayon craft that we decided to try another one. It involved melting the crayons again, but this time we used crayon shavings and an iron.
I told the kids to make a doodle on their paper, because I was thinking that they could put certain shaved crayon colors in different sections of their doodle. If you try this, don't waste your time with this step. The crayons ran everywhere when they melted and didn't stay where we hoped they would. Also, the colors mixed anyway, so why bother separating them?
After the first few, we caught on. We just took the mixed, shaved crayon in small pinches and sprinkled them all over our paper

It was a lot of fun. Try it and let me know how it worked for you!
