Chldren's Craft: Melted Crayon Butterflies

We already used melted crayons on rocks. When I saw these beautiful butterflies at Artbarblog  I knew we had to give it a try.

It was big fun last Saturday :-)

I printed out a simply butterfly pattern from the internet, which we folded in the middle (and unfolded it). 
First we had to peel of the paper wrappings from our crayons. After that was done, we used a simple sharpener to make crayon snippets, which we let drop on one side of the butterfly. The common rule "Less is more" can be applied here ;-) 
The paper was folded again and I covered it with a baking sheet additionally to prevent my electric iron from getting stained ;-)
It needed only a very short touch with the hot iron to let the crayon snippets melt....
We unfolded the paper immediately and let it dry.
The butterflies can than be cut out and be arranged on a larger piece of colored paper.

We use our melted crayon butterfly picture as seasonal decoration of our kitchen door :-)
