FLANNEL RHYME: I Have a Crayon
I have a crayon, I’ll give it to you.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of blue.
I have a crayon, a lovely little fellow.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of yellow.
I have a crayon, it’s here on my head.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of red.
I have a crayon, we can draw a circle.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of purple.
I have a crayon, what do I see?
Here is my crayon, an orange one for me.
I have a crayon, the best ever seen.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of green

*I hid the crayons behind the flannel board and brought them out as we said each color-this got them all guessing what was next! The group took turns putting the crayons in and out of the box.

CLOSING RHYME: Tickle the Clouds

CLOSING SONG: Skinnamarink

CRAFT: Sandpaper Crayon Prints
This is such a cool craft- the kids were amazed! 🙂

Supplies
White Cardstock

Sandpaper (The finer the better- we used 150)
Crayons
Iron

First, I cut the cardstock and sandpaper into half sheets so it would be easier for the kids to work with. Have them color directly onto the sandpaper (grain side). Make sure they color as hard as they can 🙂 Once coloring is completed, put the sandpaper crayon/picture side down onto white cardstock and iron right on top of sandpaper. The crayon wax will begin to melt onto the cardstock (you will be able to see this through the sandpaper). The ironing only takes about 30 seconds- 1 minute depending on the drawing. Make sure the cardstock is cool before letting the kids touch it 🙂
