Here's a perfect activity to make use of all those little crayon stubs we invariably end up with: melt them and paint with them! Babble Dabble Do shares all the details and tips, plus ways to extend the lesson.
This art project at Artchoo uses bleeding tissue paper and oil pastels. Bleeding tissue paper is different from regular tissue paper in that the colors "bleed" out of it when it gets wet. The tissue can then be removed and the beautiful colors are left behind. I love combining it with oil pastels for some Valentine resist art work.
