Melted Crayon Finger Paint

This article, entitled Melted Crayon Finger Paint comes from Karla Andrew and partner site Tech Ed 4 Kids

I just found the cutest site. They have an art project using melted crayons for finger painting. The site is Dilly-Dalli Art.

Art and music are tied to math skills and help develop the foundations for Math and Science in the future. I remember melting crayons onto a light bulb when I was a kid and then using the wax to paint. This blog includes a method that seems a lot safer!

This activity looks like it would also be fun for kids with sensory issues. Depending on how melted the way the texture will be different and the final painting will make a rough surface that is pretty cool! I would bet you could even add items into the painting (glue with the wax) before it dries. Maybe add some beads, buttons, or other small objects.

I am a SAHM/WAHM of three boys ranging in age from 3 to 18. We are working on saving enough for college at the same time as affording diapers. I author a few blogs, including http://teched4kids.com. I currently teach computer information technology classes for the local university and have in the past taught workshops for kid's in technology education besides being the Kentucky State FIRST LEGO League Championship Coordinator from 2005 to 2008.
