My students always ask......"Are those real crayons?"
The answer is "YES!" Many many years ago...a restaurant went out of business in our area. They donated all of their 4 packs of crayons to our school. There were HUNDREDS & HUNDREDS of boxes. There was no real reason I needed all of them for coloring purposes. So I decided to create a fun border/backsplash for my counter.
It was pretty easy to do. I cut cardboard to be a bit shorter than the crayons...and slathered it with craft/tacky glue. I then rolled out the crayons and lined them up with the word crayons facing me. They've lasted through three room changes!!! A fun & festive DIY for the art room!
I love this!!!! Now to find some free crayons!!ReplyDelete
Very cool idea! :)ReplyDelete
It's so funny, Ted, that only Art teachers could identify with such a cool find! We LIVE for those kinds of "gifts", don't we? The border is so bright and colorful! Your students have a great environment to learn about art!ReplyDelete
