"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

Day 12 Recycled Crayons and Leaf Rubs

Catching up on posts! I need a 2nd computer! The kids are always on here or the minute I get on they are on my tush!! Day 12 was recycled crayon day. I am sure most have seen this on www.pinterest.com We were pretty excited about it. Carter loves any project that involves breaking things and melting things. He claims he will be trying to melt crayons with a magnifying glass and in the car this week.


All you do is break the crayons down and mix them up in the muffin tray! We figured out like colors looked the best but Carter liked mixing them all. Put in oven on 200 for 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them! 

Callen loved stacking the disks up in a tower also! While they were cooling we went on a walk around the block picking out leaves to rub! Back to the old days! I remember doing this! We put the leaf under the paper and rubbed the crayons all over! Here is their finished work! (some)
