Be GREEN and color with me!

Today celebrates the 40Th anniversary of celebrating Earth Day so we decided to do a GREEN kid-friendly project! Who doesn't have a bunch of crayons in small pieces? Well I have oodles and was saving this project for this special day. Oh and it kept my boys busy for over an hour peeling paper! I am sure most of you have seen this but for those that haven't here ya go!

So take your small used up crayons and take the paper off and put them in an oven safe container. I used this metal pan that was given to me and greased it up. Then you put it in the oven at 200 degrees and wait 30 min or until melted through. That's it! How easy!

We are also taking the boys to the Manhattan Zoo on Sunday for their Earth Day activities! You can find the info here. Hope to see you there!

P.S. Notice the freshly painted GREEN kitchen wall!

Great project! I have to admit I've thrown away my share of itty bitty crayons well, now I will start saving them. Love the wall too:)
