As Thanksgiving draws near, I'm so thankful to be able to be home this week with my kids! I genuinely tried to make the most of our time together baking and doing fun things.
Today Nolan and I made melted crayon leaves! When I saw the idea over at Running with Scissors, I knew this was a toddler friendly craft! What boy doesn't like to destroy things, i.e, shredding up crayons and smashing and melting them?!?
First we got old crayons together in the right colors and went to town grating and shredding. There really wasn't an easy way to accomplish this. We tried the cheese grater, scissors, vegetable peeler and a razor blade.
While this was originally supposed to hang in my window (as seen here) for all to see as I host Thanksgiving at my house this year, it will now be travelling with us, along with ALL of the other food, decor, etc. to my parents house. My dad went 4 wheeling last Friday and ended up breaking his leg. The festivities are coming to him now! If you didn't want to drive all the way to my house, Dad, all you had to do was say so! ha ha
