How to Melt Homemade Crayons in the Sun

How to melt homemade crayons in the sun

School is out and my kindergartener has brought home a box full of broken crayons. We usually just dump them in another box of broken crayons for him to create his colorful masterpieces. The small broken crayons never really get used, since no one can actually hold them. Not even his small little hands can hold a nub of a crayon. I hate to just throw things out. There is always a use for them, so I decided why not make new crayons. I didn’t want to turn on the oven during summer, so we made up a tray and left them in the sun and this […]

Mason Jar Bank for Father’s Day Gift

Mason Jar Bank Fathers day gift idea

Giving a handmade gift is a rewarding experience. Especially when my kids get the chance to make a gift. I love to see the joy in their faces when they give their gift. If your guy is like mine, he probably already has everything he needs. There is one thing the father of my children really does need a bank for his dresser. Right now his spare change just sits in a jar on his desk. A mason jar bank decorated by our kids would dress up his boring jar full of money.

How to Make Homemade Jelly : Plum Jelly

How to make Homemade Jelly Plum

Thanks to Market Street for sponsoring how to make homemade jelly with plums post. All thoughts, opinions and photos are mine. Growing up I never had store bought jelly. My mom always made fresh jelly. We had a plum tree and dewberry bushes growing on our property. My mom would take the plums and the berries and juice them to make fresh jelly.  Smelling jelly cooking in the kitchen reminds me of my mom and childhood. It is funny how a smell can bring back such powerful memories. I never had the chance for her to teach me how to make homemade jelly, but I always remember watching […]
