I usually take photos and make a card. This year I wanted to do something a bit different with Abigail. Like most her age, she loves a craft and I found 'how to make your own crayons' on line.
So we all worked on this little project. And it WAS really easy.
Take out all of your crayons. Peel off the wrappers. (Scott used a knife to slit the wrappers to the girls could easily and quickly get those wrappers off.
Break the crayons in pieces. And place them in the mold you would like to use. We used a heart with a mini heart inside to make Valentine crayons. We likes mixing crayons colors that were complimentary.
Place in a 250 degree oven for 18 minutes. Putting it on a cookie sheet makes it a lot easier to pull out of the oven when they're done.
Let them cool and harden. Then pop em out of the mold.
Attach to cards using a bit of hot glue.
So festive and fun!
Buy new crayons for your art table at home. New, sharp, crayons are the best!
