Tonight’s science experiment..

Supposedly, a crayon will burn for 30 minutes. I read this on a picture I saw on Facebook in my newsfeed..
We decided that it was NEED TO KNOW INFO! Hahaha. So we lit a crayon on a block of wood.

Then after 10 minutes it was nearly all gone..

…but in the crayons defense, there is a slight draft in here.
At 15 minutes, it was all the way down to the block of wood. So I guess the moral of the story is this:
Always keep a lighter, a coloring book and crayons with you on a camping trip! 😉 Never know when you’ll need to color by candle er.. crayon-light.

Don’t know what to do with all those wasted yarn scraps?

“My yarn scrap jars :)”image

It seemed like such a waste to throw away all those little ends of yarn that get cut off after finishing a knit or crochet piece. Some are long enough to save and make a multi-colored yarn ball for a scraps bag, but I am not talking about those. I mean the itty bitty scraps. So I use a pretty jar that came with chocolate covered pecans inside. It got full so I started to use an empty salsa jar as well. They provide a cute decoration for my craft area as well as many good uses. Making a hat with little ears that need a bit of stuffing? Use a handfull of yarn scraps! Making a catnip pillow toy for your cat? Mix up some scraps of yarn and some catnip and stuff it on I there! They even came in handy in my daughter’s science class last year. The teacher requested yarn scraps so they could make 3-D pictures of cells. So don’t throw out those ends, find a pretty jar and save ’em for a rainy day! 🙂
