Material of the Week: Crayons

Material of the Week: Crayons

We’ve got a plethora of crayons!  They’re just 25cents a scoop.  Offering them bulk like this, gives folks the chance to be picky about they’re colors.  So if it’s a mono-chromatic hair-dryer painting you’re wanting, no worries, get right to picking out all those pinks! 

So just what can you do with old crayons.  

Draw with them of course!  The less than perfect, stubby seconds are just fine for little hands!  Check this out from our Educator Committee member, Bernadette Noll about creating a “share economy” in the classroom. 

Maybe you’re kids have outgrown the crayons, or you’re just looking for some new inspiration.  

Here are 5 ideas from dailymom.com including the ever popular, “new crayons”, crayon candles, stained glass suncatcher, hair dryer painting and a DIY crayon monogram.   Almost all the supplies from every one of these projects can be found at the center. 

 

I also love this idea for a DIY iron-on transfer, using crayons and sandpaper.  Get those onesies ready! 

 

 

 

Have fun folks!  Remember to share your creations on facebook and instagram!
