Well…I’m trying to bring it back! I can’t even remember the last time I blogged about a craft I’ve done with the boys…

Timmy and I interrupted our crayon-peeling session to pick up Jake from school. When Jake got home he was excited to get to help out. I told the boys we could make multi-colored crayon “muffins” and they thought that was cool.

I used my oldest muffin tin, which I wasn’t really using for real food anymore anyway.

So they chose which colors to put together, I tried to ensure the color combinations weren’t too ugly (i.e., no teal and bright red together). And into the oven they went.

So here’s the before:

And after:

And a close up of one of the “muffins”. Note the white top to the crayon. That’s essentially clear wax and it separates from the coloring in the cheaper crayons. Crayolas don’t do that, but I had mixed in a number of Quizno’s, Bahama Breeze, Fazoli’s, Cracker Barrel and Rose Art crayons in with the Crayolas.

Finally, some shots of the boys coloring (Jake’s making a rubbing of a yo-yo string) , and look how cool Jar Jar Binks looks with red and yellow stripes! That’s all from one crayon!
