Making Homemade Suncatchers

Crayon melting was one of my favorite activities to do when I was a teacher. It is simple, fun and educational for young children. Children learn about cause and effect when they watch the crayon melt on the paper when heat is added.

Before doing the activity with young children, it is important to talk to your children about safety. Advise the children that the plate is hot, and never leave the children unattended.

  1. Cover a hot plate or electric grill with foil.
  2. Warm the hot plate - not too hot - just warm
  3. Place a piece of wax paper over the foil
  4. Allow your children to color on the piece of wax paper
  5. After the crayon rubbings dry, cut into shapes and hang in a window


  1. So cute! This is a great, easy craft - I think we'll try this on our next rainy day!

  2. You are so crafty! Can I get some of your craftiness by osmosis?

  3. Thank you everyone! I hope that you have fun making Suncatchers with your kids!!
