Here’s a fun project to do with the kids. Make a multicoloured sun catcher by shaving crayons onto a 10- or 12-centimetre sheet of non-stick baking paper. Use a potato peeler or a grater for this task. Place another sheet of baking paper over the top and press it with a hot iron until the shavings melt together. Poke a hole near the top through the layers of wax and crayon while still warm. Once your ornament cools, peel away the papers and thread a ribbon through the sun catcher and hang it against a windowpane.
