Weekend Recap: Making Crayons & Crazy Paper Tube Sculpture

 

We finally got around to making some crayons. It took forever to peal all the crayons! We thought we had a huge bowlful...  Turns out it only made 5 muffin tin crayons. Which is OK since it was a fun activity and the girls enjoyed watching the crayons melt before their eyes. Both girls are having fun using their homemade rainbow crayons.

 

I was trying to make a funky lantern... It is not so much a lantern but I think it came out pretty cool. Plus, the girls think it makes a funny hat. You need a paper towel tube, scissors and a stapler. Paint would make it look festive.

We need to melt crayons sometime.

I like your funky lantern thing. It could make a cute monster, too, if you decorated it with some googley eyes =)

Oooh, first thing I thought when I saw your toilet roll tube creation was "bar magnet field lines". That could be an interesting way to reinforce a lesson on magnetism for young scientists!

But then I am a physics geek, so I see that sort of stuff in everything ;)

I love the tube sculpture! I just did a multi tube sculpture with my daughter. I want to do one of these sculptures with paint!
