Only the 4 little ones and us home today…everyone else is visiting grandparents. It is a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon. So…my little domestic goddess decided that we should do an art project out of our homeschool curriculum; making recycled crayons. We took all of our broken crayon pieces (we end up with a lot of these with a 2 year old in the mix), took off the wrappers, separated them into colors, and put them into cans out of the recycle bin. We then put
2 inches of water into a saucepan and put the cans into it until the crayons melted (important to keep it on low heat because crayons are FLAMMABLE). Then we poured the crayon mixture into muffin liners in the muffin pan. We then put it into the fridge to harden while we went to Tractor Supply to purchase Calf “formula” and also to check on our booth at Martin’s Flea Market.
The kids are coloring with them now while they enjoy hot chocolate and whip cream. These are the days that you don’t want your kids to ever grow up. These types of days get you through the other days that you have to walk away and count to ten……..
