Kids Craft: Aluminum Foil Artwork

This is SOOOO easy and fun. I used to love doing this as a kid!

Even though this poor little guy had a fever, he still wanted to craft. Dedication, my friends.

Materials:
 - Aluminum Foil
 - Cookie Sheet
 - Oven and ADULT SUPERVISION
 - Bits of crayons

***WARNING - THIS INVOLVES HOT PANS. YOU MUST SUPERVISE YOUR CHILD AT ALL TIMES, AND THEY MUST BE OLD ENOUGH TO HANDLE THIS TYPE OF PROJECT.***

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a piece of aluminum foil over the bottom of a flat pan and put it in the oven for 20 minutes or so.

Gather up all your bits of broken crayon. Remove paper, if necessary. 


Once the pan is good and hot, take it out and place it on some hot pads. DRAW on the aluminum foil with your crayons! They melt like paint. It's really fun, but be careful not to touch the pan. :)








Look at that pitiful little face. I can tell he's sick in that picture above. 



Anyway, so my awesome idea is to make several of these and place them in square frames, one above the other, making a cool robot on the wall. Fun, huh?. I might have actually done it, were it not for the overwhelming illness we continue to fight. ;)

Hope you enjoy this one!
