I've been meaning to do this crayon craft project with the Chickpea ever since I first read about it on Craft Apple. We inherited a bag of old broken crayons that still have good life but are a little ratty. Plus I think larger sized object fit differently in small hands and lend themselves to different explorations. So we gave them a try today on another rain filled day.
But we had fun and they turned out well. We're ready to bust out the paper and play with our new inventions now. I think if I do these again I might try using fewer colors and melting them in the microwave and pouring them into fun candy molds as was suggested on another site. But really the possibilities are endless - maybe we'll try soap next?
