Wax Paper Rainbows

Help the children cut out a folder sheet of wax paper into a bow (a rainbow shape). Provide colored crayon shavings for the children to sprinkle on one of their pieces of wax paper. They can place the other sheet on top. With adult help, place a towel underneath and on top of the sheets of wax paper. With a warm iron press on top of the towel to melt the two sheets together. When the rainbow is cooled It can be hung from a window with a string.
This was a lot of fun and looked really cool, but I stained my ironing board cover a little bit, so make sure you have something under and on top of the wax paper so that the crayon melting doesn't leak onto your iron or ironing board.
