I got this great idea from my friend Kristin in Maine. She did this with her kids last winter and I filed the idea away in my mind, just waiting for a rainy day. Well, it didn't rain today but it was suppose to. So I pulled out the crayon bucket and we all sorted out the broken crayons and peeled away. (hint #1, new crayons peel easier than old crayons)
We filled what I thought was a silicone tray. (hint #2, not all silicone can go in the oven.....oh yes, cleaning the oven is on my to do list.....sorry honey)
The kids were on a mission peeling those crayons and they LOVED breaking them! No surprise!
The finished product was so much fun and so unique! The kids were taken back by them!
"Oh my gosh, it works!"
(hint #3, if you discover that your "pan" isn't oven safe, it takes too much time to melt in the microwave. Sorry again honey, i killed the microwave. but we have 4 beautiful new crayons!)
