Broken Crayon Art
Activity DesignerNicole Duggan
Finally! The perfect art project to use up all of your broken and used crayons.
How We Did It
Draw a picture on thick card stock, or find an image in a coloring book to cut out and glue onto the card stock. He chose an Angry Bird. (Thankfully, we have a coloring book, so I didn't have to try to draw it.) Then we decided what colors we needed and gathered all the broken crayons we could find in those colors.
Next, peel all the paper off of the crayons. This was more difficult and time consuming than I thought it would be, so I used a knife to cut a line down the crayon through the paper. This made it much easier to peel the paper off.
Work on one section of your drawing at a time. Put a large amount of glue in the section and place the crayons onto it. Don't sprinkle them like glitter--pick up the pieces and place them on.
