Next we made some recycled crayons out of our big tub of dulls. After lots of trial and error, we learned that it worked best when we broke the crayon first, then worked on peeling off the wrappers. After they were all bare, we broke them into small pieces and filled the mini-muffin tin. We baked them at 250 for about 20 minutes. After they cooled and solidified, they came right out of the pan.
In my effort to forget winter, we dumped the magic snow out of our sensory table and filled it with Valentine’s rice. It is so easy to color rice and noodles! We mixed 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with red food coloring and a drop of flavoring into a baggie. (We used mint, but a friend recommended vanilla. Any flavoring would work to mask the strong vinegar smell.) After mixing the liquids, we added 2 cups of rice into the bag. When the rice was coated, we put it on a cookie sheet to dry. Then it was time to play!
