I wanted to do something fun and easy for my boys, since it snowed here and they couldn't go play outside. I remembered the simple craft of crayon shavings and wax paper, so we got out our stuff and here it is.
Start with a sheet of wax paper and some crayons.
I then shaved the crayons in the colors that they wanted on their sheets of wax paper.
I was having a hard time wondering how this was fun for them since I was the one shaving, but they had fun designing the shavings and spreading them around.
So with some creative cutting you can get them to look half way decent.
I wanted to try using bigger chunks to see if maybe that would make them look any better, so I did my own.
I also found this post from Martha Stewart after I was done and thought oh man she can make even a kids craft look AMAZING! If only!
Well I hope that even though they are hideous that it will give you an idea for a fun time with the kids, and bring back some great memories from your childhood.
