Happy Holidays! I hope you all had a loving holiday filled with family and friends.
So, Santa brought us a Guess Who by Hasbro. What fun! Turns out Grandma and Grandpa bought one for the house, my aunt bought one for her house for the grandkids. Cousins bought the game. The list goes on. We bought the version that comes with two sheets – one people and one animals. We can then go online and download more sheets to print ourselves. How fun is that?
We have played this game way too many times to count since Christmas day. We play it almost every day. This of course got me thinking of numerous other versions that currently only exist in my head. I am working on a template where you can download your own clip art, photos or whatever you want so the “characters” would be endless! The only thing holding you back is your imagination and your printer! I will post as soon as we get it worked out.
We have been having so much fun with our Crayola Crayon Maker!
We made custom crayons for all the kids in the family as a present to them. How cool is that? I cannot stress how much fun this thing is and fairly easy. The worst part is cleaning out the metal tray. I have a wooden stick I used for my cuticles that works like a charm because of the flat end. I get the dried, melted wax off with that and it’s on to the next color combination. We advise using numerous smaller pieces of contrasting colors, rather than longer pieces. Doing so will lend you a more marbled, tie dye look. Tres Chic!
Here are pics of each part of the process.
Start to finish takes about 20 minutes if I remember correctly. The longest time is the cooling period, in which you cannot open the lid to remove your newly formed crayons. This is obviously for safety reasons so that nobody burns themselves and then whines that they managed to burn themselves on a toy.
