Gasp!! A Craft {sort of}

I am constantly amazed at the talent and creativity in blogland!  There are women with power tools out there and everything in between and I am impressed!

Well, I would not be one of them.
But I have figured out how to join Pinterest and have started to save some of the things that I might actually be able to do.

Case in point...

Cute Crayons

I bought this ice cube tray at HL and had to break some perfectly good crayons to put in here.  {Gone are the days when I had buckets of broken crayons:-) }

Pretty easy ~ I thought I would use red, yellow and green to make the leaf crayons.  I know, sooo creative!!

Just bake at around 250 for about 10 minutes, or until the crayons are liquified.  After they are cool, pop them out.

So easy.

I popped them in a bag and tied with a green ribbon to mimic the stem.  Do you see it?

  I know, my girls didn't either.

Paired with a coloring book, it makes a cute little activity for busy people.

Makes me wish I had stocked up on those 15 cent crayons!!

OK, this is just cute. I want to buy the tins, and I want to make some. I have absolutely no one to give them too so my mind is racing as to whom to give it.

Then, I thought about our church nursery and the big old bucket of broken crayons we have. Wouldn't this be a great way to use them and weave a story/devotional of transformation???

LOVE this post!!

"Makes me wish I had stocked up on those 15 cent crayons!" Dang, me too!!! What a cool idea!

Thanks for sharing. I have a Christmas pan that I think will work for this.
