Tis the season for garage sales in Minnesota. Here's something to add to your list if you run across one at a sale. I found a hot skillet and couldn't wait for the possibilites. This is the first project we have done so far. We made an 'art tent' for shade and I went over the safely of using a hot plate like this. I wouldn't recommend this for a young audience. My mini's here are 4 and 6 and both have had a lot of art experience. Be careful when doing this project.

We did some more open ended and looked at Kandinsky's work a bit. Here you see Matisse coloring her skillet. Below is the wax on the skillet.
The next thing you will need is a oven glove and some paper. I placed the paper on and rubbed it with the glove. I carefully removed the art and set it aside to cool down. I would wipe up the suface of the hot plate with a generous amount of paper towel. WE HAD A BLAST!
Above are a couple more of the finished products. So much fun!
