Our first project from the board was the crayon melting project. My son is 5 years old and loves all things fast, furious, scary and destructive. So when I told him what we were going to do, after I purchased all the needed supplies, he was gung ho and ready to go! The project came from this site and looked so cool, I just had to try it.
Some things I learned in this process: 1) there is a reason you tape the whole crayon to the canvas and not half-way like I did, it keeps things neater; 2) having a larger canvas is certainly worth it since the wax can "fly" depending on how you position your "gun"; 3) crayons melt fast!
When we were done we had a really cool work of art that we now display in his "art display" area and he just loves to tell those who see it how it was done!
So there you have it, we are on our way to getting through my cool board one project at a time. . . and it makes for some great mommy and son bonding time!
Next project was wall painting!
