Recycled crayons

Well I hope your all enjoying this glorious weather whilst it's here.
We've been playing in the garden all afternoon with mum.
Just thought I'd pop on for ten minute's before we go out again. we're going to have a look at car tonight down at lyme regis so hubby promised us some fish and chips and a strole along the beach whilst were there yipeee!!

Anyway I had a spare few minute's this morning whilst river was at nursery and before mum arrived so here's what I got up to....

I've seen this done on many blog's whilst I have been blog hopping and it looked so easy to do I just had to give it a try.
So I peeled the paper off the crayons, (with a little help from hubby before he went to work) then I sliced them up into tiny pieces Then hmmmmmmm well they just didn't want to melt!!!!!!
So after about an hour of heating, poking and proding my crayons they finally melted and I managed to produce my thomas the tank engine crayons. They're not perfect but river recognised that it was thomas and that's good enough for me lol

If anyone can give me some advice on this then it would be gratefully recieved!!!

Speak to you all soon

Hi Karen,
thanks for the visit, and for buying the babushka keyring, im so glad you are getting your machine out, i love your drawstring bag that you made.
I tried melting the crayons but mine just didn't turn out very good.
