Pyramid in Color

Pyramid in Color craft

This Crayola® Crayon pyramid is more colorful than Cleopatra's life. Explore art and architecture ideas such as form and structure with kids to develop thinking skills as they create. This pyramid sparks interest in ancient Egypt, too.

  • 1.

    Spread newspaper over your work area.

  • 2.

    Choose Crayola Crayon colors for your pyramid. You could create each row in the same color for a linear look or mix up the shades for a rainbow effect.

  • 3.

    To form the pyramid's base, lay several crayons side by side. Use Crayola School Glue to hold them together. Wipe off any excess glue.

  • 4.

    On top of this base, glue on layers of fewer and fewer crayons. If you have more than about five layers, let the glue dry every two or three layers. As the structure grows, you form a triangular shape that is similar to a pyramid.

  • 5.

    Allow the glue to dry before handling the finished structure.
