It's been awhile since I last pulled out the warming tray. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go here and here first.) This time, we used our warming trays to make Crayon Melt Owls.
Back in early December, Trevor's school had a huge, awesome craft night. There were dozens of crafts, some free-form and some kits. One of the kits was this owl from Oriental Trading Company. It was the inspiration for our Crayon Melt Owl.
We started by pulling out brown, orange and yellow crayons.
Then we plugged in the warming tray and covered a paper with swirls and smears of color. Trevor had a crayon in each hand, giggling the whole time.
Here's what my finished paper looked like. Trevor's had more browns and oranges. (If you don't have a warming tray, you could achieve a similar look with paint.) Additional supplies: scissors, pop dots, googly eyes, and white glue.
We cut out the pieces from our papers.
There are five pieces: the main body, the secondary body piece, the tummy, the eyes and a beak.
Starting at the bottom, we built the owl up, using pop dots between each layer. Here's mine.
I ended up adding wings to mine.
Trevor liked his without wings. Or, more accurately, without VISIBLE wings, as he assures me his owl does have wings but they are tucked in.
Such a fun project!
