Line up your crayons the way you wish to have them lay. The most common is the rainbow aspect however you can arrange them any way you wish too. Start hot gluing the crayons on the board.
My daughter likes to help with this step.
At this point, you can melt the crayons a few ways. It's already hot here so we hung it outside and let the sun do its ‘thang. However, you can also use a hair dryer to make the process go faster.
I recommend laying a towel or paper towels under the board to catch any falling melted crayon. It will be easier to clean up this way.

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
