1. Melted Crayon Art

This is an artwork made of melted crayons.

This particular rainbow craft for kids is fairly simple although they will be needing your supervision in handling equipment.

All you need are crayons, hot glue, a canvas and a blow dyer.

First, swirl some hot glue on the surface of the canvas and lay a few crayons down. Be sure to follow the ROYGBIV sequence.

Put some newspaper on the side areas of the canvas to avoid spillage. Turn the blow dryer on LOW.

Place the canvas at an angle and point the blow dryer at the crayons so they will drip.

Let it dry and watch how beautiful the colours go together.

2. Rainbow in a Cup

You will need a pack of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple Jell-O, hot and cold water, small clear plastic containers, and a refrigerator.

Make the red Jell-O according to the instructions on the box. Pour a small amount into the clear plastic glass.

Put it in the fridge and wait for it to set (this may take hours or overnight).
