1. Let children select crayons for their stained glass windows. For special Valentine's Day projects, pinks, purples, reds and blues are nice.

2. Cut a waxed paper bag into a shape (heart, flower, diamond, circle). You will have two identical pieces.

3. Help you child to safely grate the crayons (or do it yourself and let your child use the shavings).

4. Lay a piece of paper towel on an ironing surface. Place one of the wax paper shapes on the paper towel. Let your child place the crayon shavings in a design on the wax paper. Try to fill the shavings to the edges. Cover with the other piece of wax paper and then another paper towel.

5. (adult) Iron the stack of papers on low heat, lifting up the paper towel periodically to see how the wax is melting. Your child will love watching the shavings melt together.

6. Gently peel the wax paper away and press loop of yarn into warm crayon shavings. Let dry and hang the masterpiece in a window!
