Making Crayons

Recently, my girls and I made homemade crayons. Well, not 100% home-made, but we made crayons from broken crayons. πŸ™‚ This is actually our 2nd attempt. Months ago I made them and used tin foil to line the muffin tin, and didn’t like the way they came out. They just…

Crafts with cans!

Just recently I thought that instead of tossing out my coffee cans, I should put them to use! This is probably the easiest craft you can do! I cleaned out the coffee can thoroughly, dried it well, then took some decorative paper (I used some of my scrap-book paper) and…

A fun project!

These are just a few of the salt dough ornaments we made. I tried a new “microwave” recipe this year-which was way quicker! Although I have to say that the ornaments puffed up just a little bit-instead of remaining completely flat. It wasn’t THAT big of a deal–we had fun!…
