Wax Paper Mini Leaves

This is the first year I’ve done wax paper leaves with my girls, but I did it growing up with my mom and decided it was time to give it a try with my 3 and 4 year olds. 

First we took old crayons in shades of turned leaves (yellow, brown, red, green and orange is what we used).

Next we put a long sheet of wax paper on the table and used a grater to shave the crayons onto the wax paper.

Then we put the wax paper with the shavings onto an ironing board on the floor with a towel on it.

Then we covered the wax paper and crayon shavings with another piece of wax paper and then paper towels.

Then we ironed it (without steam).

The wax will come off onto the paper towels some.

When all the crayon wax is melted let it cool.

Next we took some fall mini leaf cookie cutters I had and traced them onto the wax paper and cut them out.

We taped them to our back glass slider doors for fun fall decor! 

I had a blast doing these with my kids, thanks for stopping by 🙂
