Stunning Melted Crayon Art And Super Creative Kids Craft Ideas Have Been Released On Kids Activities Blog
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
Absolutely stunning melted crayon art has been released on Kids Activities Blog together with a gallery of cool kids craft ideas. These activities will delight any child’s heart since it combines science with art and the creations look fantastic.
The melted crayon art project uses hot rocks to melt the crayons. Materials needed are large smooth rocks and crayons. Go on a rock hunt in the garden, wash the rocks, and bake them in the oven until they are hot. Break crayons into pieces and place a variety of broken pieces on the hot rocks. Watch the crayons melt together and cover the rock. Ensure that the heated rocks are handled by an adult and the kids are observed when placing the crayons on the rocks.
Let the rocks cool down. This will take over an hour. The rocks make great paperweights with a felt piece glued on the bottom or they can turn into “You rock” gifts for teacher and friends.
Super creative kids craft ideas include creating rainbow art out of scraps, building a play scene out of cardboard boxes, making wall string art, and making crafty Japanese dolls out of clothespins and creating a run for marbles or beans out of used plastic bottles.
Another amazing idea is making fuzzy rocks and let them dissolve as a science experiment in water. Making magical flying creatures out of pom poms and creating masks will keep the kids busy for hours.
Mix and play by building sculptures with play dough and blocks. Making drums from recycled items found around the house and making art based on kids favorite books are just a few of the cool ideas currently featured on Kids Activities Blog.
For detailed instructions and to get additional amazing ideas, check out Kids Activities Blog this week. Come get inspired to get the kids creating and learning while having lots of fun.

Decatur, Alabama (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is proud to announce its newest opening in Decatur, Alabama, on Monday, March 4, at 202 East Moulton Street, located adjacent to the Princess Theatre.
Diane Holman and her husband Mark, owners of the Mellow Mushroom Decatur location, are thrilled to bring a unique atmosphere and fun dining experience to the area. Decatur is a fast growing community, states Diane Holman. Downtown Decatur has a great vibe, and Mellow Mushroom will be the perfect addition to this area. Mellow will be a great asset to the daytime business traffic, family community and the night scene, states Mark.
The menu features a variety of handcrafted pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers; each of these dishes use only the highest quality ingredients. Options for vegetarians, vegans and kids are available, along with gluten free menu options.
Located on the Tennessee River, this Rolling on the River inspired Mellow Mushroom is rooted in the owners interest in the history of the community but garnished with a characteristic Mellow twist. All Mellow Mushrooms are known as places that provide an entertaining experience in a unique art-filled environment, and this location is truly a one-of-a-kind experience:
One large piece of original art, inspired by the Grateful Dead album, Blues for Allah, has fiber optic lights embedded throughout this masterpiece, and is flanked on either side by giant lava lamps in niches. This mural sits on a brick wall, made from reclaimed bricks from historic buildings, which were once a part of this community. The Holmans and many of their family friends collected the bricks and cleaned them all by hand so they could be incorporated in to the interior.
Mellow characters Mel and Dude are presented above the open kitchen, where they look down towards the Hudson Memorial Bridge.
A stunning boat chandelier supplies a funky twist, an amalgam of vintage lights, crushed glass globes and disco balls suspended to create a special, warm glow.
This Mellow has something for everyone, including a seasonal covered/heated patio and plenty of community seating. To complement the dining experience, there is a full service bar with a great variety of craft beers, wines and cocktails. Mellow will feature live music once a week and will later announce many more exciting events to come!
Mellow Mushroom will operate 7 days a week Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to midnight.

Norwegian Cruise Line today debuts a New York City-inspired advertising campaign themed, The Best of NYC Sails to Sea to promote its new ship, Norwegian Breakaway which will be the largest cruise ship to homeport year-round in New York City. The new campaign includes an eye-catching, state-of-the-art digitally animated television commercial, print advertisements, various out of home elements, online media and new digital experiences on the Breakaway microsite that artfully render the New York City experiences found on board.
The Norwegian Breakaway television spot shows striking visuals of the Manhattan skyline cruising by the Statue of Liberty and out to sea atop Norwegian Breakaway, visually conveying that the best of NYC will sail to sea on Norwegian Breakaway. The new television spot will air on various networks throughout the winter and spring in New York, Boston and Philadelphia and can be viewed on the lines YouTube channel. There is also a Spanish version of the television spot that will air on Telemundo and Univision in the New York market. In addition, Norwegian has enhanced http://www.breakaway.ncl.com with new digital experiences that highlight the New York City experiences found on board and demonstrate how Norwegian Breakaway brings the best of NYC to sea. Site visitors can watch as a theater on Broadway is transformed into the Breakaway Theater and as New Yorks popular SOHO Neighborhood transitions into The Waterfront on board Norwegian Breakaway. Additional transformations will be launched later in January including Central Park being morphed into the ships Aqua Park.
Its so exciting to be launching this dynamic advertising campaign promoting our new ship, Norwegian Breakaway, during the start of Wave Season, the best time to book a cruise, said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Lines chief executive officer. Our goal with the campaign is to show the ships strong connection to New York City in a visually striking way that will inspire everyone to want to come aboard and experience all that Norwegian Breakaway has to offer beginning May 12.
Designed as New Yorks ship, Norwegian Breakaway will bring the best of NYC to sea when she arrives to her year-round homeport in early May 2013, offering the high-caliber dining and entertainment options that New York is known for worldwide. The line also announced that it is an official partner of the popular NYC & Company programs: NYC Restaurant Week and Broadway Week, further strengthening Norwegian Breakaways strong ties to New York City. To generate additional awareness and buzz throughout the city, Norwegian, in partnership with NYC & Company, is creating interactive Breakaway Warming Stations that will pop-up in different locations throughout the city in January.
As part of the partnership, Norwegian is prominently featured in the NYC Restaurant Week and Winter Broadway Week promotional booklets, on nycgo.com, and in advertising, including bus shelters and on light pole banners throughout the city. In addition, on select dates in January, New York City residents and visitors are invited to visit one of Norwegian Breakaways Warming Stations, where they have the opportunity to get a break from the cold weather and a hint of the warm weather and sunshine the ship will offer guests when she sails from New York year-round to Bermuda, Bahamas & Florida and the Caribbean. Guests can learn about the ships exciting amenities or take a photo amongst a beach-themed setting, which can be uploaded and shared on Facebook right from the station. Photos from the Warming Station events can also be viewed on the lines Facebook page. To add to the excitement, visitors can also win special prizes hourly, including tickets to see the Broadway smash-hit Rock of Ages, or dinner at Geoffrey Zakarians restaurant, The National.
The Norwegian Breakaway Warming Stations will take place between 9 am and 4 pm on the following dates:
