Send off top-secret, highly classified letters with a royal flair! Seal them like kings used to do, with bright red seals.
Long ago, people’s letters were hand-carried to recipients. To keep their words private, they folded the letter and put a spot of melted red wax over the edges. To prove they were the sender (and to reveal if the letter had been opened before it was delivered), they pressed their insignia or seal into the wax. Invite students to find examples of this practice in myths and history, such as in royal and military correspondence.
To make one's own seal, students roll a tiny ball of Crayola® Air-Dry Clay. Students use their hands to press the clay flat. Then press objects, such as a marker cap, coin, or leaf into the clay to make a pattern. Air-dry your seal at least 24 hours.
Students cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Paint the seals red with Crayola Tempera Paint. Air-dry the paint.
Students write an important letter with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Address the envelope and insert the folded letter.
Use Crayola School Glue to attach your red seal to the flap for maximum security. Air-dry the glue.
Students deliver letters to a classmate. Provide class time for delivered letters to be read.
