How to use the build a crayon activity:
First, print out the coloring page template onto white printer paper or cardstock.
Begin by writing the child’s name in the oval. If your students or children are able to write their names themselves, this would make a great opportunity to practice!
Alternatively, you can print multiple pages out and write different color names into the ovals. Kids can then color in the crayon to match.
Next, using crayons, markers or colored pencils, begin coloring in all of the shapes that make up the crayon.
Cut out each shape using scissors. If the your children or students are able to, this would be a great time for them to practice working on their scissor skills. If they are unable to safely use scissors, you can cut out the pieces for them.
Next, begin gluing the pieces of the crayon together to match the sample at the bottom of the page.
You can either be done at this step, or glue the crayon onto construction paper to add a fun colorful background.
This craft can be used at home or as a fun way to decorate student’s cubbys, desks, or walls of the classroom.
