So, I have all my shopping done. Just finished decorating the trees, and my presents are all wrapped underneath them. It is so pretty at night with all my outdoor lights lit, and the cookies and goodies make my house smell soooo yummy.
Ummmm...yeah. Okay. Back to the real world. Where VERY LITTLE of that is actually true. Well, none of it is, if you MUST know!
I did have time for an easy craft. I found it in a magazine the other day when I was lucky enough to spend all day in doctors waiting rooms for one thing and another.
Take your old bits of broken up crayons and take the paper off.
Put them in a silicone baking pan. You can use any shape. I happened to find this one in the dollar aisle at Target. Similar ones were $10, so trees it was.
Put in the oven at 400 degrees until liquefied (about 5 minutes). I've never used silicone baking pans before, and I DID put them on a baking sheet. The silicone was much too flimsy.
While I am sure it would be VERY amusing to watch me jumping around with hot wax all over, I opted out of that step!
Cool, and pop out of mold.
Magic- NEW CRAYONS! If you mix a bunch together, they will come out rainbow-y. Janey wanted to sort them into similar colors. So we did.
