I know homemade crayons are nothing new, but we love making them around our house mostly because Mommy has OCD and cannot stand messy, broken crayons! I don't know what it is, but broken crayons make me cringe. It is right up there with letting the kids use glitter...EEWWW. I keep a nice crisp box of crayons hidden for Mommy to color with! We get rid of the yucky ones by making nice, pretty new ones and what is great about them, they are usually too big for the kids to break!! We usually make them for the kids at school for most holidays but last week I went in and made them with the kiddos at the preschool. They had a blast (what kid doesn't love breaking crayons). The cutest part of it was when we were pulling them out of the molds. I sat there with the kids all huddled around me and as I pulled each one out and announce the owner of this brand new beauty, the whole group of kids would go "OHHHHH, AHHHHH" together in harmony. They were thrilled with them!!!!
These ones are going to a few of the girl's special friends. I used My Creative Time Color Me Happy Sentiment as well as Hello Kitty and Create A Critter Cricut Cartridges. I am entering them into Craft us Crazy's Anything Goes Challenge.
