Stained Glass

I was surprised at what a hit this project was. Cambria was completely absorbed for 3 hours while we listened to conference. Here are the happy artists:
First we peeled crayons. Then they peeled off shavings onto wax paper with potato peelers.
Then they folded the wax paper over the shavings, placed a dishtowel over the whole thing and ironed.

They removed it and cut it into the shape they wanted and voila!
Maya's finished product

Cambria's finished product

They each made quite a few and loved every second of it. In fact, Cambria asked if she could say a prayer while we were waiting for the iron to heat up (I unplugged it between each piece):

"Dear HF, We're thankful for this project and I hope we can do it again and I hope my next one turns out beautiful." And it did indeed.

Oh, I totally remember doing that when I was young! I LOVED it! In fact, I'm pretty sure I'd still like it now.
