Recycle Crayons into New Shapes!

Do you have lots of crayons that need to be recycled? You can recycle them yourself in a fun new useable shape! Crayons are made out of paraffin wax. When heated, the wax reaches its melting point and melts into the new shape of the mold you choose. Once they harden... ta da! A new crayon shape!

Reading STEMs Learning: Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe Book Review

Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe was written by Julie Coy Manier and illustrated by Grant Manier.  The book is about a baby giraffe named, Grant, who was born with puzzle shaped spots instead of regular giraffe spots. The other animals at the zoo realize how different he looks from the other giraffes and over time, they realize that he is different in many ways.  As Grant grows, he and the other animals realize just how special and talented he is!  He makes incredible art pieces for the zoo with recycled materials.
