I had traced a starfish onto wax paper and the kids sprinkled the crayon shavings onto the starfish. I "warned" the kids that if they put all the colors on top of each other, it would end up brown. So most of them used a different color for each arm of the starfish.
I had left enough room on the side of the starfish so I could fold over the wax paper before ironing. But you could always just put another piece on top of the starfish. I ironed them on a towel.
When they cooled, which didn't take long at all, I cut them out.
They look beautiful hanging in our window!
Make sure you use an old towel because this is what mine looked like when I was done:
The spot on the left is where I ironed them and the spot on the right is where I cleaned my iron after each one. For another starfish craft, check out our Glittery Starfish!
