My Pint Sized Picassos.

You guys, how come none of you told me how awesome Pinterest is?!?!

It’s ok, I forgive you. You probably didn’t tell me because you knew I’d waste an absurd amount of time there. Which I now do, thank you very much. Buuuuuuttttt… in all of the time I spent surfing there, I found an AMAZING amount of crafts to do with kids. Which was a life saver, because it rained here all weekend and the kids were chewing on the craft room door like angry beavers.

Sooooo… we decided to create some wall art. We went to Joann’s and bought some canvases, enough crayons to embarrass an entire elementary school, and some glue. I own a blow dryer already.

We glued the crayons into shapes and patterns on our canvases. Each of the girls got to pick their own shape, and then practice Roy G. Biv while gluing. Then, when the glue had dried we took them out to the garage for a little melted wax fun!

Kittenfish... the straight line was her idea. Who knew my two year was so epic already?

She's so sweet... yes, I did write "Jesus" in there for her. I think it would have been cuter if she did it, but she didn't want to.

We got Dad to hang them on the wall for us, et viola! A fun afternoon that they'll remember forever!

Did I get any actual craft projects done for myself? Errrr….. does half done count? 😉

    These are so cute, maybe my 13yr will do one for me. Do you just glue and melt? What’s the process?

      We used canvas, and glued the crayons on with Elmer’s Craft glue, making sure to follow our color pattern and keep the labels out. Then we let the glue dry for a while. We took it to the garage and laid down some cardboard to catch the splatter, and then melted the crayons with a blow dryer. We rotated the canvas to make the wax go where we wanted. It dries almost immediately!
