Materials needed:
Wax paper,
old crayons,
butter knife,

With a butter knife, shave off pieces of old crayons. Lay the towel on a table or
ironing board. Place one piece of wax paper on the towel. Sprinkle the crayon
shavings on the wax paper. Lay the second piece of wax paper on top of the
shavings. Cover with a cloth or paper towel. With the iron set to medium-low
(no steam) iron across the wax paper for about 15 seconds, or until the crayon
shavings are melted, and they stick to the wax paper. Depending on the iron, you may have to adjust
the temperature setting and the time. Be careful not to burn the wax paper. Keep the iron in
motion while melting the crayons. After cooling, cut the crayon/wax design into different shapes.
Cutting out different styles of leaves could help the boys to identify the different shapes of leaves on
