One of my former 5th graders melted a bunch of crayons and poured them into
an upside down mask form (you know the blue plastic ones that are used with
plastr-craft...) -- took off the plastic and had this awesome wax face that
she inserted into the trunk of a corrugated cardboard tree. Took alot of
her friends peeling crayons to help her though!
