Directions

1. Draw or trace the outline of a butterfly on a piece of waxed paper.

2. Shave the broken crayons, using a knife or vegetable peeler (this is a good job for an adult).

3. Arrange the shavings within the outline of the butterfly.

4. Cover the waxed paper with a second sheet of waxed paper. Cover with a dishtowel or old cloth.

5. Iron two layers of waxed paper together on low heat. Let cool.
