Top o' the mornin' to ye. Not much to say about this wee crafty. My kids were hankerin' for a craft - I was feelin' the lack o' the green round our house now that March is here. Went lookin' for ideas and came across this Valentine craft on Pinterest, which I adapted for St. Patrick's Day simply by changing the shape and the color of the crayons.
It's a super simple craft, and it's extra fun because it surprises the kids - they don't know what's going to happen to the crayon bits, making it sort of science-experiementy to boot! The final results are so pretty! I keep finding myself in front of my window studying the individual patterns in each shamrock.
Pencil sharpener or knife
Iron & ironing board
|6. Using the iron on a low to medium heat, and working from the center to the outside edges, press the crayon shreds until they are all melted to desired effect.|

Hang and Enjoy!!
