Melted Crayon Art

Put on your creative hat and try your hand at this simple melted art activity.


  • Canvas
  • Crayons
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hair/blow dryer
  • Newspaper or old T-shirt


  1. Decide what colors you want to use and place the crayons across the entire top of the canvas in your desired arrangement.
  2. Hot glue each crayon in the order that you chose to the top of your canvas.
  3. Slant the canvas so that the wax will drip when it is heated.
  4. Use a blow dryer to heat the crayons. It’s best to point the blow dryer downward so that the wax will drip. This may get messy—have your newspapers or old T-shirt laid out prior to applying heat.
  5. Let your artwork dry for several hours. Remove the crayons and display your masterpiece to the world!
