Nothing says “teen boy” like melting crayons with heat guns!

Before I go have “Sweatpants Thanksgiving” – it’s like regular Thanksgiving but you’re sad because you’re not with your family so you wear sweatpants with your friends – I just wanted to let you know about this awesome program I had Monday.

Inspired by a previous Children’s Room program and countless Pinterest pins, we made  . . . Melted Crayon art! And it was awesome! I had fifteen teens and about 7 of them were boys. Yay!

This is what happens when you Google it.

This is what happens when you Google it. (Oooh and you can see what my bookmarks are! Friendface!)

Basically, you hot glue crayons (Crayola really do work best) to a canvas and melt them with a heat gun! (Or heat tool. Whatever you call them they look . . . a little funny. But not so funny that you can tell you teens why the heat guns make you laugh. That’d get you fired.)

So basically: melting with heat guns + crayons = fun for boys and girls! On that note, have a great Thanksgiving and I still hope to talk about Fault Line soon.

  1. “Teen boys”? I’m 27 and am going to do that. Looks pretty cool.
