Dinosaur Crayons


We made these cute dino crayons to share at my daughter's preschool this week.





I found this silicone dinosaur candy mold on amazon, for under $5






For specific directions on how to make these you can see my post here


I hope all the little three year olds will enjoy coloring with them! :)

Playdoh Dinosaur Fossils

I found the creepiest dinosaur toys on Amazon...these Dinosaur skeletons! My girly girls weren't really wanting to play with them at first and I don't blame them. LOL

 But they are so cool to use in making... dinosaur playdoh fossils!

Handprint Dinosaurs



Roar!!! Watch out...the dinosaurs are coming!




Such a cute craft project and so super simple. 
I love that these pictures also become a keepsake of your child's cute little handprint. :)



Munch and Cakes had a fabulous time making their handprint dinosaurs!

Recycled Rainbow Crayons



The perfect thing to do with all of those broken bits of crayons that are driving you crazy...make recycled crayons in fun shapes! We have made crayon disks, leaves, and hearts but the choices are endless. Just check your local craft store to find all of the fun molds in the baking section.




Have your kiddos remove the paper from the crayons
and break them into small pieces {if they aren't already;) 


Fill your mold or muffin tin (as you can see that's what we used) and bake in the oven on 250 for about 10 minutes. Tip: if you leave them in there too long the colors blend so much it just turns into a brown mess! I check on these often and when they've cooled (overnight) you can just pop 'em out of the mold and you have awesome recycled rainbow crayons! 

If you don't want to wait overnight, put them in the freezer and they harden much quicker. 


Here are the hearts we made for Valentine's Day a few years ago. 
They were perfect favors for our preschool friends. :) 

Another year we made a bunch of fall leaves and acorns in fall colors like orange, red and brown. 





Enjoy!
