Inside craft with the kids!

This week is SPRING BREAK for us.  Which means the kids will be driving me nuts we will have a lot of time to spend together!  🙂  Sadly for us, it started with blizzard like conditions.  No park, picnics, or bike rides like we had hoped….so we had to pull out the big guns…. A CRAFT!  Lucky for me, my sweet cousin,  Megan, e-mailed me an idea for just such an occasion.
It worked out perfect!  My kids LOVED it!

All you do is heat your pancake gridle.  (You get different outcomes with lower and higher heat.  I set mine on 200*.)  Then you let the kids pick a picture to color.  They can choose to do a coloring book page or a black paper.  Then they color with crayons and they will melt as you color!  When they’re all done, hold them up to the window and they make these GORGEOUS stain glass windows.  Even the WORST of colorers have sheets that turn out awesome!  Be careful with the little ones around the heat, of course.  I just held their little elbows up.  You should definetely try this out today!
Thanks again Meg!  You rock!

  1. Ah we love “melty crayons” around our house too! We found it worked best when we held the crayon down before starting to move it around. Hope you have a fun spring break! I sure enjoy you guys’ blog!

  2. I completely spaced that I was teaching our co-op preschool group this morning. Thankfully I saw this on your blog a few days ago. Totally saved me and the kids LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Thank you!
