We are colorers. that’s not a word. but you all know what i mean..so technically i just made a word.
as we sort through…we pull off the paper then we lay down a sheet of wax paper and then you can either A. use a pencil sharpener and use the shavings.
b. use a knife and cut it up.
or C. (my kids favorite) put in a plastic baggie and hit with a hammer. then design it how you want (keep in mind…it turns pretty runny so you won’t be able to see stuff as clearly as you like.)
you can either A. lay out in the sun (which is what we did.)
or B. put it in the oven on low (on an old baking sheet)
or c. Put it in your car…(if you are looking for a fast melt!!!) then you can teach your kids how it gets even hotter in the car than outside.
you can also score these fun ice cube molds at joanns or the dollar store and make yourself some awesome shaped crayons (source)
or turn it into a stained glass window
or you could melt your crayons on some hot rocks
