Crayola Suncatcher Snowflakes, Crafty Holiday Joy! #Craft

Heading into winter that is the time of year we get all our rain. As a result I end up with some stir crazy kids who are always needing something fun and out of the ordinary to do. So when Crayola contacted me and offered to send me some supplies to create a craft, I knew it would be perfect for one of those raining afternoons.

Then this great box showed up and we got:

Crayola Washable Markers
Crayola Colored Pencils
Crayola Glitter Glue
Crayola Model Magic
Crayola Slick Sticks

The hard part was trying to decide what we could create with it. I actually used the Glitter Glue and made little personalized ornaments for each of the boys in our Cub Scout group. Even though it was fun, it wasn’t exactly new and exciting.

What you need:

Various sizes of wax paper cut into squares.
Scissors
Crayola Slick Sticks
A couple of stir crazy kids.

Crayola Craft

First step, let the kids color the shiny side of the wax paper with the Crayola Slick Sticks. We had everything from random scribbles from the little one to a landscape scene and different colored stripes.

After they color you will want to put the wax paper sheets in a 200 degree oven for about 20 seconds. I set them directly on the oven rack. When you first pull them out of the oven the crayon will be a little sticky but as it cools, it will return to normal.

After they have cooled, fold the wax paper like you would a sheet of paper so you can cut snowflake shapes into it. Then using your scissors cut out along the edge in different shapes and sizes to create a snowflake.

Carefully unfold and then you can use string to hang in front of a window or tape and put directly on the window.

I love the way these look when the light is coming through.

You can also follow the Crayola Holiday Craft Pinterest board for more holiday themed craft ideas.

I also love the Crayola Slick Sticks. These crayons come in a twist-able tube so you can just twist the bottom as the crayon wears down. These crayons are super-smooth and formulated to glide across the page.
