Works for Me Wednesday
E loves to color! She calls it "writing", as in iwannawrite. However, seeing as she is two, there are always men down at the end of the coloring session. Small little pieces of broken crayon. It used to frustrate me, I was constanly combing the clearance isles for cheap crayons to replace the never-ending stream of useless ones. Until, I got out my old muffin tin. I save all the little pieces of colored wax and when we have enough (which happens pretty quickly), I put them in the oven on a low setting and wait for them to melt. I usually keep similiar colors together, remove the paper, and now you have little crayon cookies. They are perfect for toddler hands and keep me from having to buy new crayons every week. Works for me!
