Have kids find flat smooth rocks, and wash them. Put them in a 250 oven
for 10 min. while the rocks are heating, have children remove the paper from
old crayons. place warm rocks on newspaper. When the children draw on the
rocks the crayon blends and marbles. If they hold the crayon in place, it will
run down the side, very cool craft. The rocks get pretty hot, so this is best for 3 and up.

Put a piece of paper over a textured surface or a flat object like a leaf. Rub the crayon back and forth. Find all kinds of surfaces that make nice pictures.
Break up 6 to 9 crayons of many colors in 2 cupcake papers. (The papers should be inside one another.) The crayons should be 1/2" long. Put the cup in the microwave for 3 1/2 to 5 minutes on high. Watch to see when they melt. Not all of them need to be totally melted. Take out the cup and let them cool for at least 10 minutes. Peel back the paper carefully and remove the crayon.
Let cool about 5 minutes longer
Make crayon shavings by peeling off the jackets of various colored crayons and inserting them in a pencil sharpener. Then spread glue over a sheet of paper, or moisten the sticky side of a length of paper tape and press the crayon shavings into an interesting design or picture on the paper.
