Students will create a piece of art.
- Two sheets of wax paper (make sure they are the same size)
- Old bits of crayon
- An iron
- An old cheese grater
- Lay a sheet of wax paper down on a flat surface.
- Take a cheese grater and grate bits of crayon into small shavings over the wax paper.
- Have students spread those shavings around until they are happy with the colors and patterns.
- Lay the other sheet of wax paper on top of all the crayon bits.
- Carefully press a warm iron over the top sheet of paper.
- The crayon shavings will begin to melt into one another forming designs.
- When the wax paper has cooled down, hang the creations in a window.
