COLOR CRAYON SHAVING ART:
Get out the color crayons and a pencil sharpener and create a collection of crayon shavings on top of a piece of wax paper.
After the shavings have been collected and spread evenly across the paper, cut another sheet of paper equal in size to lay on top of the shavings. Use an iron on the lowest setting to iron directly on top of the waxed paper and melt the crayon shavings. It only takes a quick swipe of the iron to do this. The wax immediately melts and cools rather quickly. After the wax paper cools, cut out any shapes you fancy!
