Melted Crayon Shaving Picture

We have some old crayons. To put them to good use we decided to make something with them.
I made crayon shavings using a vegetable peeler. I arranged a sheet of baking paper. I put some newspapers and a kitchen towel under it as we needed to use the iron later.
Then Defne arranged them on the  paper to her hearts content.
She said a ballerina is dancing in the middle ;)
Then I folded over the wax paper and ironed it on a low setting. We observed how the crayons melted. A few minutes later, when it  was cool enough for Defne to handle it, she peeled the  paper and voila!

We loved the colours!
