For our day off of school on Monday, I thought I would entertain my kids with some crafts. Luckily, I had some ideas up my sleeve. I saw this first one posted a while ago on Infarrantly Creative. Such a fun and easy craft to pull off. All the materials needed were right in the pantry – well except the glue. 🙂 We loved doing noodle art and we will probably be doing it again. Next time I might even attempt to color my noodles like THIS.
Next, we cleaned out all of the broken crayons to make new ones. Using tips from Better in Bulk we made cute smiley face crayons. My kids enjoyed watching them melt! Be sure to fill up your shape you are melting into. Our first ones were really thin. Also, be careful taking them out of the oven. I was a little shaky and the colors mixed together a little bit making them not as cute.
I think that my kids had a great day off of school. It was really fun to do something different.
