Project 1: Flag Crayon Melt Sun Catcher


  • Crayola Crayons (red, blue, white)
  • Wax Paper

  • Crayola Glitter Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayola Washable Liquid Glue 
  • 3 Paper Plates
  • Painters Tape.


  1. Sharpen or grate 1 blue, 1 red and 1 white crayon. Do each on a separate paper plate. 
  2. Lay piece of wax paper on a flat surface. Make sure it is a heat protected surface or put a towel under it. 
  3. Sprinkle the crayon shavings in the shape of a flag on the wax paper. 
  4. Carefully place a second piece of the wax paper on top of the crayon shavings. 
  5. Use painters tape to secure the wax paper to the surface (so that it does blow away if you are using a blow dryer)
  6. Use a blowdryer or iron to melt the crayon way. 
  7. Let it cool. 
  8. While it is cooling glue 4 popsicle sticks together in the shape of a square. 
  9. Cut out the flag so that it fits in the popsicle stick frame. Glue it to the back of the frame.
  10. Use the glitter glue to decorate the frame. 
  11. Once the frame is dry hold it up in front of a window and watch the sun shine through.
