Getting Crazy with Crayons! Are your kids bored? It is summer, grab your box of crayons (broken crayons work awesome too) and get crazy! We have some fabulous ideas using crayons! Check out this awesome Canvas! Help your child hot glue the crayons onto the canvas, then using a blow dryer or heat gun melt the crayons and create your piece of art. (Be sure to cover your surface with newspaper, tablecloth or plastic before starting). Also pictured below is a cute tin wrapped with crayons and crayons inside to keep your crayons looking nice and adding great organization to your childs art station. Now for the broken crayons: Midge took her broken crayons and created Custom Crayons using cupcake liners and her oven. For details be sure to watch the Mingle!!!
