I grew up in the 50’s. Times were different then. It was long before Wal Mart and Target, we didn’t drive to the city very often and when we did, we didn’t drive on the interstate and for most of my childhood my mom stayed home with us.
We didn’t do a lot of crafts but the crafts that we did were memorable and special.
One of the things that I have learned over the years is that the same things that amazed me as a child, usually amaze the children in my life. So today I want to remind you that sometimes the most basic art is the best.
If you have wax paper, crayons, a pencil sharpener and an iron, you create something amazing.
Use the pencil sharpener to shave the crayons, sprinkle the crayon shavings between wax paper, iron on a low setting and “Voila” magic!
My mom always let us use our Wax Paper Creations for place mats which made our dinner just a little more special.
What are some of the basic crafts that you enjoyed when you were a child?
