Rainy Day

Adele and I have accomplished quite a bit on our rainy day indoors!
We made cookies this morning with all the extras we could find in the pantry. I just let her choose the fillers and most of them are really good! There are some with nuts, some with chocolate, and some with marshmallows--- marshmallows don't bake well FYI.

Then we made 'cupcake' crayons based on Mollie's instructions (can't figure out how to link it from my phone).

We peeled the paper off all our old broken crayons.

We sorted them into colors.

We mixed different color combinations.

We baked our crayons at 200 degrees for 15 minutes until they were just melted and then we let them cool before we used them!

They're actually quite beautiful and work perfectly in small hands!
