|When the crafts come out, everybody does the happy dance!|
For this craft, you'll need crayons. Any crayons will do... new ones, old ones, broken ones, whole ones... ones your one year old happened to chew on (hypothetically speaking, of course). You'll also need an iron (ironing board is optional, but I enjoyed it's availability for this craft), old towel (to protect your ironing surface), old sheet (to protect your iron), and paper. I've done this before with wax paper, and that definitely made a fun effect... but the only wax paper we have on hand is brown and I didn't want to use it. Computer paper to the rescue!
|Can you tell that I use that sheet for a spray paint drop cloth? Oh the fun!|
|My "Unloved Crayon Box." These are the crayons that the wee one is|
allowed to use when we color. They're already "ruined", so what's the harm?
|We grouped "like" colors together so we'd have a|
mixture of different depths. Or, I just didn't want to pull
out two dozen individual bowls. Either way...
We couldn't wait. First, we tried to make a flower...

LIVING ON THE EDGE!
|I didn't realize God made flowers that resemble baby poop!|
|"I'm just so EXCITED!"|
In fact, we couldn't really stop ourselves. We were running out of places to let them dry!
|Make your right ear touch your right shoulder... |
it's a butterfly and flower!
