Enrichment - Making Crayon Disks

It dawned on me recently that C was not getting any art at school. I had not worried about it to much, because there is more going on with her that needs my focus. Art can be a stress release for some and I really feel that this is true for C.

We set the oven to 300 degrees, sprayed the muffin tin with cooking spray, took the paper off the crayons, and divided them up.

After about 10 minutes the crayons were fully melted.

A couple of them broke getting them out of the tin, but no worries here. Now that my mind has realized that C needs a little creative art time, I will give her more opportunities.

That is a great idea! I'll have to try that sometime. We have quite a few broken crayons and such that would be perfect for this.
