Craft It: Keep Kids Happy with Hot Rock Crayon Art!

created at: 06/30/2011

Oh man.  I would have LOVED this as a kid.  Heck, I’d probably still like making a few of these crayon rocks (I’ve always been fascinated by materials and the various forms they can take).  If there’s some childlike wonder to entertain, either for yourself or, you know, for an actual child, then we have the craft project for you!

The process is simple enough and we have the girls at eighteen25 to thank for the tutorial.  All you need are some smooth, flat rocks and crayons in any color your heart desires.  When you’ve found the perfect stones, head on over to eighteen25 for the complete how-to, including tips for how to heat your rocks (and not burn yourself or your kids).
