I found this little gem over at Instructables.
Isn’t this cool? I wish I had thought of this when my kids were little and I had BOXES of old crayon stubs lying around the house, and in drawers, and on the floors and stuck in the heating vents.
But I digress.
What a cute, cheap and FUN thing to give away at your child’s school Valentine party! They could insert these into their valentine’s (thereby making them unique and a sure crowd pleaser), or into the kids’ goody bags. Wouldn’t that be so much better than sticking a bunch of gooey-chocolately-goodness in their bags?
Er, maybe not for the kids, but I bet the parents would prefer it. *grin*
Anyway, if have a few minutes, round up the kids, gather those crayon stubs and follow the tutorial to make fun crayon shapes!
In fact …
I bet I still have that old box of crayons around here somewhere. I wonder if I could talk my teenage boys into doing this with me.
Hey boys! Want to melt some crayons and make fun shapes??
I guess that’s a no?
