Crayola Crayon Maker


Remember how exciting it was to open a new box of crayons and inhale that memorable smell?

Imagine what it smells like when you actually make your own Crayola crayons right at home.

From the website:

    Provide hours of creative fun to boys & girls by letting them melt and mold rainbow-swirled crayons with the new Crayola Crayon Maker!

    Fun for the child, extremely safe and low mess for mom.

    Recycle old worn crayons into new ones, using the crayon labels and crayon mold that is included.

I like that part about recycling the stubs and broken bits we used to throw out.

$23.99 here.

"Remember"? Hell, I still color all the time. It's quite soothing actually. And it helps me to remember that art (and creativity and design) doesn't have to be hard. It's sometimes as simple as making something that was once very plain more beautiful.

While I'm in confession mode, I still love to color my own crazy version of a Spyrograph. I just take a black pen and draw arcing lines all over the page then color the individual areas different colors. It has a kind of stained-glass effect if you work at the colors hard enough.

Well, back to the Play-doh now. ;) (Having a five-year-old in the house does have some benefits anyway. You can claim the toys are for him.)
