In addition to catching things on fire melting crayons with the blow dryer, I also pulled out the crayons for another little project.
This time, I had a lovely assistant
First, we glued the crayons together into her first initial, H. She got to pick which colors she wanted to use.
Then, she got to have some fun. I turned the canvas over to her and told her she could decorate it any way she chose.
Such determination on her face!
Check out her finished product
She absolutely loved it! Once I finally dig the hammer out of the depths of the basement renovation project, I will hang it in her room with the other pictures we’ve hung of hers. Although, with her recent foray into the art world, I may need a bigger wall!

Super cute! This is definitely something I could do with all three of my kids this summer, I think! Thanks for sharing.
