Fun Flower Art

This is a fun art project that I have been letting my Kinder kids do this week.  I posted about using old warming trays last summer.  It is great fun for the kids to watch the crayon melt on their papers!

They have turned out so cute!  I have also found that some of my Kinder kids are very artistic.  I had one little girl shade with a white crayon, it turned out so neat looking!

First of all the kids colored their flower picture using the warming tray.  After letting the crayon dry for a few minutes, I had them use watercolors to paint the background blue.  FYI— I would definitely use construction paper if possible.  The crayon can leave a waxy residue on the warming tray. 

Here are a few examples:
