My own efforts at melted crayon art for our daughter. Board is the normal backing to the picture frame. Painted with white chalk paint. Letter and umbrella blanks cut out of cardboard and the rest is obvious from the pics.
Jello inside of straws = JELLO WORMS! Rubber band the straws together. Pour jello mixture in straws. Place in fridge until gelled then run straws under warm water for about 5 seconds and life like worms slide out!
