We tried a VERY fun art project recently. We painted with crayons on our griddle. When you heat up the griddle, the crayons melt and swirl all over the paper. It was so much fun. I was really enjoying doing it right along with my kids.
Here is how you do it:
Cover your griddle with foil. I secured it with a little tape on the plastic edges to make sure it stayed put. Heat it up- I think I did it at 275-300 degrees. You'll be able to tell if it is too hot it'll start smoking a little.
Peel some old broken crayon chunks- we've all got them...
Put some paper on the griddle & color on it with the crayon. If you press lightly it'll melt. Swirl together colors to make an amazing work of art. Make sure they know the edge is hot- so this is probably best done with kids who are a little older.
The finished works of art!
