Hot Rocks

Each day, I'm trying to spend time with the kids making art.  
So far, so good.
Yesterday, we painted hot rocks with crayons.

KennaKat got a hold of them and scraped some of the wax off :/

It's so simple, the kids loved it, and begged to do it again.
You heat rocks at 350 in the oven for 15 minutes.
During that time, have the kids tear paper off of crayons
Prepare a heat safe spot for your rocks.
{I put foil on top of a pot holder for easy cleanup}
Also explain to the kids that they will get burned if they touch the rock.
{Have a cup of ice water near by just in case}
Once rocks are hot, start your art.
The crayons melt away as they are placed on the rocks.
The finished product is beautiful, colorful, pieces of art :)

If 3yr old KennaKat can follow the directions and not burn herself, I'm sure Page can :)
