Melted crayon art using hot rocks will make great "You rock" gifts for family and friends.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
Absolutely stunning melted crayon art has been released on Kids Activities Blog together with a gallery of cool kids craft ideas. These activities will delight any child's heart since it combines science with art and the creations look fantastic.
The melted crayon art project uses hot rocks to melt the crayons. Materials needed are large smooth rocks and crayons. Go on a rock hunt in the garden, wash the rocks, and bake them in the oven until they are hot. Break crayons into pieces and place a variety of broken pieces on the hot rocks. Watch the crayons melt together and cover the rock. Ensure that the heated rocks are handled by an adult and the kids are observed when placing the crayons on the rocks.
Let the rocks cool down. This will take over an hour. The rocks make great paperweights with a felt piece glued on the bottom or they can turn into "You rock" gifts for teacher and friends.
Super creative kids craft ideas include creating rainbow art out of scraps, building a play scene out of cardboard boxes, making wall string art, and making crafty Japanese dolls out of clothespins and creating a run for marbles or beans out of used plastic bottles.
Another amazing idea is making fuzzy rocks and let them dissolve as a science experiment in water. Making magical flying creatures out of pom poms and creating masks will keep the kids busy for hours.
Mix and play by building sculptures with play dough and blocks. Making drums from recycled items found around the house and making art based on kids favorite books are just a few of the cool ideas currently featured on Kids Activities Blog.
