Crayon calamity

Chocolate overindulgence and small children is a recipe for disaster in my book. I tried to be a responsible Easter basket filler this year and thought we would put in some other bits and bobs. The kids helped make Hama bead chickens and eggs and we also tried our hands at rainbow crayons (a la
Martha).

We were pretty pleased with our efforts, but I've had some negative feedback. My friend Kathy: "What were those weird waxy things?". She'd tried to eat them. What could I say? Well, they were non-toxic.

Note to self: LABEL ITEMS BETTER!

Love "baking" crayons. It's so much fun!

Very clever!! good idea i've never tried melting crayons into shapes, the kids would probably get a kick out of it.
