So, while Samuel and Beau are at school, I have been trying to do projects with Henry before this baby arrives! Here is one of those projects…homemade crayons.
The first step is to find all of the broken, worn down crayons…this should be quite easy, for as you know that with every box of crayons you buy, you also get an ‘invisible crayon breaker’ for free! Next step is to peel the wrappers off of the crayons…
group your colors together in any array of colors that you like! I put them together in mini cupcake holders, then microwaved for about 3 minutes each…*the amount of time you microwave for just depends on your microwave, so check often!
Take them out of the microwave when melted and let cool (I put them in the freezer to speed this up), and Voila, you now have homemade circle crayons!
I put these in a plastic container and take them to the ball fields with us to give whoever is NOT playing something to do if they get bored!
