100 Days of School Equals 100 Day Projects Using the Cricut and Lots of Wonderful Ideas and Even a Crayon Art

The 100 Day project Dusty did (of course with my help and the other boys had some help too) We used a 15x30 canvas by Winsor & Newton that I purchased from Jerry's Artarama then I cut the silhouettes of the children from a Cricut cartridge named A Child's Year I cut them at 5 in Bazzill Black Cardstock  then Dusty and I spread out the Golden Gel Medium regular will work fine we used matte. Then while that was drying Dusty separated the colors into sections by color you can use the wheel at Data Pointed.net   of course thanks to Pinterest for all the crayon art ideas I just ran with 100 day project on this......

Dusty sorting the crayons
we bought the 96 pack from Wal-Mart and a used four new crayons we had at the house.
 
So as he continued to sort the gel medium dried and we ready to begin
He did such a good job on the sorting, Bravo Dusty!
Silly boy so proud of himself!
 
We then lined up all the crayons using hot glue gun ours was a low melt temp. Then we took a heat gun and went back and forth until it melted and that was all it was....so easy! Thanks Pinterest!!


When we took the projects to school the next day I took pics of all the projects because there were so many wonderful projects and it looked like all the children really enjoyed their creativity!!! Yay!






 


 


 
 


 


 
 


 
 

 








So I know you have seen a lot of 100 Day projects to spark your imagination!!!!
Cooper also had to do a project too...so we took some of the shells that the boys pick up on the beach all summer long and Cooper sat and sorted them into groups of 10 of 10 shells each to put inside the frame I bought from Michael's and using an old piece of beachy scrapbook paper glued it into the frame....added the poem I wrote (yes I do have the poetic side at times...some good some not so good, lol!!!!) and wrote out a little poem for his project.....which now that his project has returned home I will hang it our beach home. Thanks for looking at all the wonderful 100 day projects...enjoy this it is soooo much fun!!! Until next time...
Have a great weekend!

Hi! Love your blog post. I have been waiting for our little one's 100 Day at school to try making some melted crayon art. After scouring the Internet for tutorials yours is the only one I found which used gel medium. What is the purpose of the gel medium? Does it help adhere the crayon drips to the canvas? Thank you!

@rsmeraz thank you. It's just what I had on hand. You can use modge podge, collage pouge. We did this because we knew everyone would want to touch it and the drips can fall off after awhile so the gel medium made a sealant. Thanks again.
