Wax paper art.
Items you will need for project:
Roll of Wax paper
Drop Cloth or old sheet
Leaves and small Flower's(any non-toxic thing foliage
This is a simple one, but it's really fun. Find a large enough clear space inside, or preferably outside, to lay down a drop cloth or table cloth. You could even use an old sheet. Take the paper off the colored crayons. Use the cheese shredder to break up the crayons into sliver's, or you could put the crayons between two piece's of wax paper and have the kids crush with a round cup, into a crayon powder. They would probably really enjoy squishing the crayon's.Keep the colors separated. You might want to do most of the prep, depending on your child's age.
Here's the cool part! Put the iron on low heat. Have the kids cut two piece's of wax paper about the same size. Place one piece flat on the table cloth. Scatter some crayon powder (many colors) over the paper. Take the leaves, flowers, etc., and arrange them on the paper. Then take more powdered crayons and sprinkle different colors all over the arrangement. Then place the other piece of wax paper over the top of the whole layout, try to line up both piece's of paper evenly. Then iron the wax paper sandwich until the crayons melt and the two papers hold together by the crayons. Keep the iron moving in small circle's so as to not melt the wax paper. The colors will melt and mix in between the paper and you will be able to see the leaves and flowers patterns swirled in colors. Let everything cool and do not remove the wax paper. You will be able to see the colors and leaves through the paper. You and you kid have just made a piece of art that you can treasure. Every child can be an artist with this type of activity. Just make sure that you watch the look in your kids eyes when they are seeing the colors melt together. Realized that the joy comes not only from the art, but is also from you spending time with them. For it is our time that children truly crave and need to feel loved. I hope that you try this wax paper collage. I really enjoyed it when I was a child, I hope your kids do too.
