Remember those giant super crayons I made? Well, turns out the kids think those crayons are too big for their tastes. So, I decided to get a box of those small bathroom cups and do a remelt. PLUS, we have recently switched from bottle glue to glue sticks in our home. And I've been saving the empty ones for just this purpose.
Off I went.
This time I melted them in the microwave. At about 30 seconds a time. Stirring in between.
|The key to the cups was to get the crayons in SMALL SMALL pieces so they'd melt faster. I was using wax lined cups and some of my cups almost melted away before the crayons did!|
|one of the cups I poured into the glue sticks. It doesn't take much melted crayon to fill up a glue stick. the paper cup was perfect for pouring. Just pinch it a little to form a mini funnel.|
|Son sat down at his make shift craft table and started to get to work. He definitely seemed to enjoy the glue stick crayons and the smaller giant crayons.|
