Our Creative Space!

With the girls home on holiday I thought I would show you the creative space that we are all sharing today. The first is the puzzle making that was done this morning, Miss 10 got this for her birthday from Grandma just recently. The two of them had a lot of fun putting the puzzle together and I joined in too, it's a bit additive.

My Miss 10 has wanted to make some crayon melts so today I bought this cute mould and we made some crayon melts. It is a great way to use up those crayons that have been broken and lost their papers and they look cute made into a different shape. We just cut them into smaller pieces and arranged in the mould. Put them into a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius and cooked them for about 10 minutes or until fully melted. We then waited till they hardened and popped them out ready to use later. Thanks for stopping by our creative space, be sure to stop by Kootoyoo for more creative spaces. Bye for now!

  1. I just saw crayon melting somewhere in blog land yesterday I think I'll give it a try sometime. Yours look great, is that a silicone mould?

  5. Oh how cool! Seems you have a budding scientist on your hands :) I love the shape. Tell me, do they lose any of their "drawing power" or does the colour stay pretty much the same as the original crayon?

  8. Love the flower crayons. My mom used to save up all our broken crayons to make sand candles with. I love being able to make something pretty and new out of "broken" things.
