TIME:  11:50 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Shredded crayon wrappers

We started making StellaDella’s classroom Valentines today while they were out of school due to the snow.  We are recycling the plethora of old crayons we have (two plastic shoeboxes full) into new chunky swirly ones by melting them in a Valentine cookie pan I purchased on clearance at Target last year.  StellaDella and I peeled the paper from a kabillion crayons – Two things I learned from this:  One: peeling crayons takes much longer than you think it would and two: I am a much faster peeler than she is.

What a project! It made a neat shot though!

Yay! You made the chunky crayons! It took us forever too. I ended up using an exacto knife to slice them and then they pulled off in one piece. Hope it went well!
