Thats right, a pumpkin sprout in December! Its no wonder I am so behind on Christmas projects....it just doesn't feel like Christmas!
Maddie did get busy today with a Christmas project. She made "new" crayons from old crayons for the day care kids and a couple of friends. Here is what she did.
|Soaking the crayons in warm water to get the label off. We read this tip and it worked well!|
|Maddie broke the crayons into pieces and filled the cookie pan we purchased for the project.|
|After 10 minutes in a 275 degree oven we had melted crayons!|
|When they were cooled Maddie was able to remove them from the pan.|
|And package them up with labels from Balancing Home.|
That was a fun project and I think we will soon be actually ready for Christmas despite the weather!
