Crayon melting art (or how to stop poorly toddler meltdowns!)

It was meltdown central in our house this afternoon…so in a bid to help calm the situation I decided to get canvasses out that I found in our decluttering process & try out a crafty idea I had seen on Pinterest.

It was very messy, but lots of fun. Next time I think we need to find a better method of holding & melting the crayons but nevertheless we enjoyed our crafty time. We only had three canvasses the big boys (10 & 8) did one together, I helped the little ones (23m & 4 tomorrow!) with one each…
