We have had a wonderful and successful Summer Reading Group once again this summer! There were 13 weeks of summer and each Monday, one of 13 Moms hosted our kids to read a book and share activities centered around that book. Our kids did so many fun things this summer, including a teddybear picnic, making homemade icecream, meeting a real secret agent, learning about earthquake safety, making Native American birch bark buckets to collect maple syrup...You can read about past summer reading group experiences.
One mom shared this fun craft with the group. (We actually split up into a younger reading group P-2 and an older reading group 3-6grade since we had so many children who wanted to participate)
She hotglued crayons across the top of a thin canvas board. You could use cardboard or the inside portion of a cereal box too. Then she used a hairdryer to heat the crayons....and the wax drizzled to form a design. She said that the kids were really excited about watching the colors weep and combine.
