A great way to not only make a bright fun background for your first day of school party, but to also inspire a discussion about solids and liquids is to create a fabulous art piece with melted crayons!
With the help of an adult, this craft for kids is fun, colorful and will have them buzzing with interest.
What makes this craft idea so great is that while they'll enjoy the project, the kids will learn about the difference between a liquid and a solid (a mini science lesson) as well as how to sort by color.
If you've got young child learning the colors of the rainbow, this is a fantastic way to teach them!
When they're finished crafting, your kiddies will be so proud to hang their work of art in their room.
A large stretched canvas or a large piece of white paper adhered to a board
1-2 packs of 64 crayons
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Pour out your crayons and sort by color.
Step 2: Arrange your crayons in your desired order on your canvas or mounted paper.
Step 3: Hot glue each crayon to your surface.
Step 4: Tilt the surface, turn on your blow dryer and let it hover over the crayons so that they melt. While the crayons are melting it is a perfect opportunity to discuss how some solids like crayons or ice turn to liquid when heated. So much fun!
