crayon making

Make new crayons from recycled ones!
Yes, you and the kiddies can make crayons. Too easy. Take the wrappers off your broken crayons, place them in greased muffin tins. Place in a 275 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Pour into lightly oiled (they pop out easier) candy molds or into cookie cutters placed on a foil lined cookie sheet. Then put them in the freezer for another 10 minutes.  Instant fun and crazy colored crayons.  Great inexpensive recycled Christmas gifts.

Toothless Fairy

This week I introduced the Toothless Fairy and the girls ate it up.  This fairy loves candy, not your kid's baby teeth.  Just leave the sweets and she (you) will leave a small gift in return.  Here's what happened:  the girls picked three pieces of their favorite candy from their loot and the rest was left for the fairy on Monday night.  In exchange, the fairy left a new hat/glove/scarf set for each girl the next morning. I dumped the rest of candy in the community bowl at work.  Next up...Valentine's day.
