Here are the supplies:

 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 cup salt

– 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
– 2 cups water

– 1/4 cup glitter (or more to your liking)
– 2 teaspoons pure mint extract (not pictured in above photo)

Death Star Crayon Resist Craft:

This one really excites me. I love doing crayon resist projects with kids as a teacher. They love it and it ties science in with art.  Plus you can do any film or franchise with this technique. The directions for this one come from Fun-A-Day.

Here is the supply list:

  • White cupcake liners  (paper also works)
  • Gray and black crayons (any colored crayons will work)
  • Black watercolors (regular watercolors will work in any color)

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW, at a very young age, to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. I've been successfully running social media and websites since 2010. I'm a co-host the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. I'm also a former contributor and acting social media manager (built it from the ground up with my husband) at The Kingdom Insider. Certified art teacher and mom! Opinions are all mine.
