Crayons For Little Hands!

Young kids seem to create a pile of broken or nubby crayons, like it's their job. It has a lot to do with the shape and size of their crayons and their hands - they can' help breaking them! Save those broken crayon pieces and create your own for a fun coloring solution!! Start by peeling the paper from the crayons and breaking them into smaller pieces. Fill your muffin pan with foil cupcake wrappers and put a bunch of the pieces in each one. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, then put your muffin pan in the oven -- and turn the oven OFF. Let it sit until the crayon bits have melted. Remove your pan from the oven and allow everything to cool. Pop the wax out of each wrapper, and you'll have a rainbow of round crayons that are perfect for little hands! Kids love'em - and adults do, too! Thanks, Doreen! (via Vocalpoint)
