Guest Post – Crayon Crafts

My good friend, amazing artist and even better photographer has graciously given me an any-time craft good for kids of all ages (so long as you’re right there, helping!) She’s so creative! Her blog has so many more crafts and beautiful photos, definitely go check it out!

Hi, my name is Alex and I’m the mom of two little (and active!) boys ages 3 and 6. You can follow our adventures on my blog, Alex Nguyen Portraits. Here is a fun and simple craft to do that’s good for toddlers and elementary school kids with just a little adult supervision. It also helps use up the broken crayon bits you have laying around. It will create beautiful stain art like art projects.

What You Need:

  • wax paper


  • crayons


  • (cheese) grater


  • iron


  • towel


  • scrap/construction paper (optional)

    I use a cheese grater (use hot water to clean off the wax), and get small shavings of the crayons
