Easy Bakin' and Crayon Meltin'

I promised a quick post on the Easy Bake Oven and Crayon Melting adventures we had while on Christmas break. Warning - lots of pictures, I was messing with my camera and got a little crazy. Grace loves to look at these pictures though!

Red velvet cupcakes, pink frosting, and sprinkles!

 

The task of getting the right amount of sprinkles is very serious!

Just right!
 

We decided since they were so tiny, we would make them into whoopie pies instead! Loved them!  

 I decided it was necessary to put frosting AND sprinkles on Grace's nose! Hilarious!
Now, a proper 5 year old would NEVER let frosting go to waste...especially pink frosting!
Pretty girl...

Want one? :) These actually have been one of the better items to come out of this machine.

And next, on to the delicate art of crayon melting.

 First things first, find the crayons you want to melt.

Next, remove the paper...

Break the colors into pieces and lay in melting trays with colors you want to blend.

Next is the hard part, waiting for your crayons to melt in the machine.



If you'd like, you could make some evil faces as you wait...

Pretty ones work too...
 
You'll begin to notice them getting softer: 

And finally time to pour!

Oops, bad mom. Didn't take pictures of the finished product. It's pretty cool and Grace enjoys doing it. Fun project. And a great way to use up crayons that you might not use otherwise.
