Crayon Melting Pumpkins
These are really easy to do and so pretty when done! I have read about this being done several ways but, like most things we do, I read on how others did it and then decided the best way for us to do it, my way. The first thing you should know is you really should use name brand crayons for this. The cheap ones crack off and just don’t hold up as well all around. You can melt the crayons easily with a hairdryer on high, however holding the crayon in place can get hot and taping them in place leads to them cracking off after you’re ready to peel the tape off. We hot glued ours into place which worked out really well and let us put them all on at once leading to the color blending effect turning out better as they melted. We have done a few of these, each one different and more beautiful than the last. Last year we added the large googly eyes, gems, and pipe cleaners (all found at the Dollar Tree and/or Wal-Mart from 98 cents to $2 depending on quantity) on one of them to make a silly color monster. Everything is hot glued on with gorilla glue sticks which held very well all month!

Click the photos for more details on how they were done, what was used and where you can buy the things you’ll need to do them yourself! Using any type of clear spray paint on painted pumpkins will help avoid paint chipping or washing off in the rain and also helps preserve the pumpkin longer! We spray all of ours painted or not to help slow rotting.
I do apologize for some of the photos on this post (and others) they may be distorted a bit they’re very old photos. I have try my best to clear them up, but I’m not the best at it, none the less I really hope you enjoy these Halloween activities with your kiddos!
