***CAUTION: watch out that little (and big) fingers do not get burned on the oven, hot rocks or melted wax during the project! Constant parental supervision on this one.***
What you need: crayons (our Crayola and RoseArt crayons produced much more vivid colors than the no-name brand), rocks, foil, hot pads, and access to an oven.
- First collect some rocks, we preferred the larger ones.
- Wash, dry, and place in an oven for about ten minutes or until hot.
- Place the rock on a sheet of foil (with a hot pad or towel under the foil) and decorate with your crayons. The hotter the rock, the more runny the wax will be.
The final photos didn't come out too well, but trust me they are better in person--very bright and cheerful.
