Somewhere Over the Rainbow

 Hi Stampers,
Yesterday I watched by 6 year old nephew and he loves to craft.  He was sitting in the craft room and said it was like sitting in an "Art Castle".  I had some canvases and he wanted to paint so he did his and I had another idea in mind.  I had seen this idea on Pintrest and thought of my daughter who loves rainbows and the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow, so I added the title with the Pazzles, then hot glued the crayons down and hit them with the heat gun!  How much fun we had watching all the crayons melt and run.  Then since blue birds fly over the rainbow I used a Sizzix die and cut out a bird and wings and hung him over the rainbow with some wire.
This was a great project to do with my nephew!  He had a hard time giving up the crayons though to put on the canvas, since I told him he could have what was left over:)

Here is a look at Ben's picture....he loves glitter so I added the glue and he very carefully and meticulously added spoonfuls of glitter.
Hope you have some fun crafting with your little ones:)
