My son came home from preschool today and said "Let's make something mama!" Well, okay!... bring on the fried snowflakes.*
- Fold a doily in eighths and snip it into a snowflake.
- Place the doily in a clean, dry frying pan. Using a microplane grater, grate two colors of oil pastel 'crayons' over the doily.
- Turn the heat on low and watch carefully. 'Cook' your snowflake just until the crayons begin to melt (about one minute).
- Turn off the heat. Remove your fried snowflake and allow to cool (and harden) on a solid surface.
*No child necessary to make this project. Feel free to whip out a frying pan, a few doilies and some oil pastel crayons and make a snowstorm of fried snowflakes on your own as the mood strikes.
