So as many of you know I teach Pre School. Two-Three year olds to be precise. So last night I took my approximately 75-100 crayons of assorted brands, sizes and colors and painstakingly took of all the wrappers, sorted them by color and melted them down and poured them into silicone molds to make toddler sized chubby crayons. Toddlers have a hard time with small crayons and even the jumbo sized ones I found they were still getting broken often and the kids had a hard time gripping them. So I made these for them. I am very excited to show my class on Monday. I think the flower shape will be easier to grab and the petals will allow for detailed coloring still. I am proud of my teachering this weekend!
