There is just something so exciting about a new box of crayons. The kids can have boxes of them at home, but they are still drawn to the crisp yellow and green box when we pass them in the store.
I'd been wanting to mold our own crayons for quite a while now. I considered doing it for Genna's colorful party in November, but it was a good thing that I didn't follow through with it then (it is a little time consuming and messy). A few weeks ago Amber posted about how to do this fun project.. And then I found this picture on Flickr.
So yes, it was messy, lots of crayon papers and chunks of wax everywhere. I hope my cutting board recovers. I did take a magic eraser to it and it took most of it off.
But then end results were definitely worth it.
Even the big kids thought it was fun!
