Crayon Muffins

When my 6 children were little I was always looking for fun craft ideas. Now blogs  have so many great ideas it can boggle the mind. But here is a fun easy craft to do with your pre-schooler.
I told my 5 year old granddaughter that we were going to break a few rules today--but only today.
We had the task to unwrap crayons and break them in small pieces. Crayon pieces were placed in mini muffin pans that had been sprayed with Pam. We mixed and matched colors, excited to see what we would make.

Crayon muffins were baked in a 200 degree over for 10-15 minutes. Watch closely and see the magic happen. Crayons cool quickly and pop right out. What fun we had seeing the color combinations we made. This was a perfect hour activity.
EJ was excited to tell her mom all about our activity. She explained to her mom, "First we had to break some rules".
