Steps:

1

Unwrap the crayons you want to use to make your raindrops. Experiment with shades of pink and red!

2

Sharpen crayons into small shavings using a pencil sharpener.

3

Protect your surface. Then, sprinkle the shavings onto a piece of wax paper. Be sure to blend the coloured shavings!

4

Place another piece of wax paper over the top of your crayon shavings. Tape down the edges. Make sure to remove as many air bubbles as possible.

5

With adult supervision, use a hair dryer to melt the shavings until they form a colourful melted surface.

6

Wait for your melted crayons to cool before cutting heart shapes into your melted crayon and wax paper. Accent with Glitter Glue.

7

Use a hole punch to create the hole for the string.
