I'm melting, melting...
I am sure all of you have seen a how-to on making your own crayons on a blog somewhere. If not it is super easy. Step one: Take all your broken crayon and peel off the paper. We had lots because it is a hobby of J's to break crayons. Step 2: Break them up into small pieces and put them into a mold of your choice. We just used a cupcake pan and liners. Step 3: Bake @ 225 degrees for 25 minutes. Step 4: Cool and remove from mold and there you have your very own crayons. Today we made a few of our own. The kids thought they were doing something naughty because they got to peel all of the crayons themselves and break them into (as J says) "Little Tiny" pieces. I think the colors turned out pretty cool. I only wish I had different molds to use to make different shapes. I will be on the hunt at the thrift store for some for next time.
I am a Twenty something Stay @ Home Mom in the state of Kentucky. I am a originally from FL. I am the blushing bride of a bold preacher of the word of God. My hubby and I have been married since 2004 and the Lord has grown our love for one another and our friendship everyday. He is my Best Friend! I am also the proud parent of the 3 cutest kiddos in the world!
GJ - My little Girl has my husbands inquisitive nature and my...everything else. She is so creative and silly. I enjoy just watching her play, to see the funny things she comes up with.
JA - my big boy has given me so much appreciation for how fun little boys are! They are missing a filter. The filter that says, "this might hurt", or "I shouldn't do that".
PM - My baby number 3 who is so sweet and I am cherishing every minute of him being a baby! His smile can light up a room, not to mention his hair!
My husbands drives me to know and love my Lord Jesus Christ more, and my kids reveal the love the Father has for me everyday.
