  1. When your oldest is a little older or when you trust him to listen to you and stay safe (maybe next fall), try this project with large orange crayons and only one shhet of waxed paper. Place the waxed paper on an electric kitchen warming plate. Set the warming plate on the lowest setting. Keep next to him to keep him safe. Make sure he knows that he must be very careful only to touch the crayon. The plate won’t be harmfully hot, but he should learn to avoid ever touching it for safety’s sake. Have him color inside the pumkin shape and watch how the colors melt onto the paper. While this is still a craft, it requires more of him to create it. This incorporates more art into the project. However, by next year he might be able to cut out the pumkin, too. Maybe. πŸ™‚

    1. OK, I confess this works better with copy paper than wax paper unless you put a thin sheet of regular paper under the wax paper to avoid it sticking to the tray.
