3 years, 11 months.
In addition to making you feel special by taking you to go get tater tots at Burger Republic back in September for the “The Great Food Truck Festival”, you also had a lot of fun that same weekend by helping Mommy and me make some of the party favors for your upcoming birthday party in just two weeks.
For your appropriately themed Lego party at Bricks 4 Kids (A Lego-themed party place), we are giving out homemade Lego Man crayons as part of your party favor bags.
Mommy found the Lego Man mold on Amazon. From there, we found a few boxes of old crayons; some of them having been baking in our cars for the past couple of years!
My main job was to take the knife and cut off the paper wrappers. Your job was to organize the crayons by color (which you did with great pride) and throw away the wrappers for me after I cut them off the crayons, which was actually very helpful for me.
From there, Mommy crushed them and fit them into the molds, baking them for a little while. After that they went into the freezer to cool off.
Too bad we only had one mold tray, which yields 8 Lego Man crayons at a time. Mommy was basically baking batches for about 6 hours straight in order to produce a total of about 64.
So as you can see, as long as you use as least 2 different colors of crayons, each Lego Man crayon is guaranteed to look unique, like a snowflake or a fingerprint.
My favorite one looked like the Earth. I named him Captain Planet.
Without surprise, you immediately chose your favorites to put in your own goody bag.
Making those Lego Man crayons was definitely a fun family activity for us. Granted, Mommy’s role was the most tedious.
But we all a great time. It was such a unique and “Pinteresty” thing for us to do.
I guess we get cool points now or something…
