How about a way to use up all those broken crayons too?
This is so easy, the kid did it!
This is best done outside on newspapers, or with a piece of cardboard around the pump to catch splatters (see bottom photo fro what I mean). You can use real OR fake pumpkins!
Hot glue your crayon bits to your pumpkin (very important step, otherwise they slide off!). You can leave wrappers on for easier melting also.
Turn on your blow dryer- depending on how old it is, you may need HOT setting, so help younger kids, and melt away.
When you get the drips where you want them, you're done!
As you can see Miss Grace went for a more gruesome look to add the pumpkin to her Halloween village (I think it's gonna be the 'killer pumpkin', sigh....imagination....)
It took us about 30 minutes to get the look we wanted!
