Gingerbread Men Crayons

Sadie and I finally found a use for our broken crayons while Mae was napping today.  She peeled them and helped me break them into smaller pieces.  Then we put them in a silicone gingerbread man bold and we baked them in the oven for about ten minutes.  She was fascinated (she was hoping that they were going to turn into cookies).  We let them cool in the fridge to harden.

Afterwards she tried coloring with them... but then decided that standing them up and stacking them were even more fun!


  1. Okay, that's just clever. I'll be stealing this idea when I have little ones. Or at least, to entertain my pet art student.

  2. Cam and her children behave cutely while I leave unfitting (but tangentially relevant) comments:

    Cam and Thomist will both probably get a rise off of this one, if I read them right at all. The SCC recently ruled in favour of teaching children a wide variety of religions in Quebec public schools, simultaneously. Catholic parents offered a dissenting oppinion.

    Commentary, and the SCC ruling, here:


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
