Stain Glass Art

Age 2 and up!

Stain Glass Art

Items you will need:
Old Socks (adult socks work best they are thicker)
Peeled Crayons (NO BLACK)
Wax Paper
Flat electric (pancake type) griddle

What you will do:
Peel your crayons first.  While doing that, plug in your electric griddle to warm up and get hot.  Have your child wear old socks on both hands. Place a piece of wax paper on the griddle. Give your child a crayon, let them color the wax paper while it melts the crayon. You can throw in a Science lesson by asking what happens to the solid wax when it gets hot.

Later you can cut the wax paper into shapes, like leaves and ornaments. I usually punch a hole through them and hang them in my windows. The colors are so beautiful.

**This is a project is used with preschool-summer camp age kids.  It is SAFE with plenty of supervision. All kids love it, no matter what the age.**
