Crayon crafts are easy to make and do not require much time. Not only kids, but adults can also learn the techniques for making craft works with crayons.
Crayon Crafts for Kids
Craft for kids need to be simple. However, activities such as melting and ironing of crayons should be performed under supervision of adults. Kids must not be allowed to handle fire. They can carry out the dry processes, which are also a part of the craft work.
Crayon Craft Box
A box can be constructed with the help of recycled paper or sandpaper. This can be colored with different color of crayons and then used for storing small toys, pencils, candies and other trivia. Similar process can be applied for constructing jewelry boxes, pencil stands, small containers, etc.
Crayon Sun Catcher
Sun catchers can be installed in window panes, beautifully decorated with crayon colors. You can use your old crayons for this purpose. Grate the crayons with the help of cheese grater and place it on the top of wax paper.
Make a double layer by placing another piece over it. Compress it with low heat iron, so that the crayons melts. Allow it to cool and let the crayons take beautiful designs. Punch holes and pass a ribbon to hang it on the window.
Now apply dark coating of black crayon as cover. Scratch some pictures or landscapes with the help of toothpick, spoon or paper clip and you shall get the picture prominent over the black crayon background.
Before pouring, place a thick thread between the container that will act as the wick of the candle. To get different shapes of candles, you can do the pouring in multi-shaped cartons.
Let the kids draw a thick crayon design over a heavy paper. Now fold the paper to a ball and crumple it. Make sure it doesn't get torn out. Open the paper and wash a coat with watercolor or with ink.
Dab it with towel so that it doesn't flow to the crayons. The water color shall fill up the places where the crayon didn't and also over the cracks on the paper. When dried completely, you can iron it by placing a sheet of paper above it.
Fold the paper into different shapes and put it inside a box or embellished envelope. Gift it to your dear ones. After opening, the message will appear like a magic from inside the paper.
