8 Ideas for a Crayon Themed Classroom

  1. Use a hair dryer to melt crayons on a canvas and create a beautiful customized sign for the door.
  2. Create a hanging banner by scanning covers of books with a crayon theme.
  3. Hot glue crayons around the outside of tin cans to create containers for student pencils or other school supplies.

In the newer version, we used all new clipart which includes much more diverse characters. Also, we made the entire bundle 100% editable so not only can you customize it with your students’ names and details specific to your classroom, you can now translate EVERYTHING into other languages too. This has long been a request from teachers of ELLs and immersion classrooms. Both versions are available in the Elementary Classroom Decor Collection.
