You make alphabet crayons!!
The night before we all sat on Elijah's bedroom floor and peeled the paper off of all the crayons. That part is the most tedious. I have a suggestion ~ once a crayon breaks peel the paper off and save them in a bowl or jar for later use that way you aren't spending tons of time peeling the paper off of tons of broken crayons at once!!
Aren't they cool!!
Some of the letters were harder than others to remove without breaking. They do not stick at all but some are harder than others to get out of the grooves. It gets a little easier with each batch but some letters were impossible for ME. For instance, in about six batches of the complete alphabet (I said we had TONS of broken crayons!) I only managed to get one N, one S, no M and no H. Oh well we had plenty of other letters!!
What do you do with alphabet crayons?
Color with them like any other crayon
Display them in their room spelling out their name
use them as a little add on gift at a birthday party like we did when Elijah went to a birthday party the next day. We spelled out his friends' name and wrapped them separately. His friend thought they were cool and they thought I was crafty ~ win win if you ask me!!!
Needless to say we have tons of alphabet crayons now!
We sent some to his friend. Some went home with Avani. The rest I put in a jar so they don't get broke all at once and they look very colorful in the jar on their dresser until they use them all! I will probably give them away at parties too. They wanted to display their name on a shelf BUT since both the boys' have an "H" in their name and we broke every singe "H" this wasn't happening. Maybe next time!!
