This is super fun activity to do with kids of all ages but the older the better because of the use of the iron. If attempting with younger kids, just make sure they realize you are the only one able to do the parts that involve the iron. These turn out beautifully and each on is different. Hang in a window or near a light and they really do look like stained glass.
- Waxed paper
- Crayon shavings in the colors of your choice
- Hole punch
Lay out a piece of wax paper on an old towel (This protects your counter).
Place crayon shavings on the wax paper.
Lay another piece of wax paper on top.
Place a paper towel or another old towel on top of this wax paper (This protects your iron).
Place iron on top of towel on low heat, rubbing gently for a few seconds until wax is completely melted.
Remove top towel and let cool completely.
Cut wax paper into a heart shape, punch a hole in the top and add ribbon.
Hang in a window or near a light and enjoy your very own stained glass heart!
My note: I love this idea! It looks like so much fun, a perfect little craft project to enjoy one afternoon. I’m going to help Abby make a stain glass heart for all the grandparents! A big thank you to Gillian for sharing this wonderful project.
