Crayon Puzzles...HORRAY!

Trying to find something to occupy two tots on a miserably hot day inside can prove to be a challenge! Not to mention when Momma is sleep deprived and baby is needy. So break out a box of crayons and start peeling! Yep...we peeled crayons and took some time to test them out before breaking them up. I had bought a silicone puzzle mold from IKEA ages ago and still hadn't used it so in went the crayons. 300 degree oven until they melted, didn't watch the clock but only took about 15-20 minutes. After being nagged every few seconds if they were done, we took them out to cool for about a half hour. Gentle removed them, only broke one and puzzle piece crayons that really fit together!
The tots think they are awesome and Jocelyn says "beautiful!"

Oh and another goodie of news.....
ARIANA is walking by herself!!!! She decided to grace us with her new Independence on Father's Day and has been toddling about ever since! YEAAAAAA!!!!

  1. Looks like fun! I am glad Ariana is on her own, I know that will make it a little easier when you are out and won't have to juggle to much in your arms.
