Melted crayons

I'm sure all of you have seen the melted crayon art on Pinterest.  Yesterday we made some of our very own. If you follow me on Instagram (randomlybossy) then you may have seen the "before" shots (and the "after" shot).  But here is it for your viewing pleasure.  Whiny has named his "Color Waterfall."

BabyGirl's, Master's & Whiny's

How we did it:

We (and by we, I mean I) hot glued the crayons to the top of a canvas.  I let the kids pick out what colors went where.  Actually, I did BabyGirl's.  

Then we propped them outside, leaning against the house all day.  And I do mean all day.  When we left for karate at 4ish they really hadn't melted down the canvas.  At about 4:45 Dad Boss called me to tell me that to make sure we looked at them when we got back from karate.  

Some of the crayons melted in big globs of wax but it looks really cool and the kids were really excited about them.  To be honest, I was excited too.
