i don’t know what possessed me to do this.
i saw the cute ice cube trays at ikea.
i had seen the idea on blogs.
we have approximately 517 used crayons in our house.
so, i decided to make heart crayons for isaac’s valentines for his preschool class. it took a little bit of trial and error to figure out the most efficient way to go about this. the hardest and most time consuming part was cleaning the tray between batches. wax does not care about dish soap. or 409. or scrubbing. or even bleach. i finally had to get scalding hot water at about a 1:1 ratio with dish soap, rubber gloves, a stiff scrub brush and a lot of elbow grease to get the tray even half way clean. next time i’m going with disposable plastic trays. if there’s a next time…
anyhow, here’s the results:
i know, i know. poor isaac is going to be the kid with the mom that gave out crayons instead of candy. not to worry, i picked up some fun dip for him to give out too. you’re welcome other moms. you’re welcome.
