When I woke up for work today I found Andrew working on a little project. Often when he funds projects on YouTube we don’t do them because they end up being a bit messy or complicated. But this project was a good one that he could do with little supervision. He saw a video about all these 5 minute crafts that you can do with rocks and one caught his eye. Melting crayons on heated rocks.

It is pretty simple, find some rocks, heat them in the oven, touch crayons to the heated rocks to melt the wax on the rocks. When you are done you have some wax colored rocks with cool designs. I helped Andrew with the final rock, which was a larger one. We learned about how the various sizes of the rocks mean that they retain heat for different amounts of time. This big guy needed more time than the rest to cool enough to be safe to use. In the end this is the one that he gave to me.

While I keep saying that I am trying to cut down on buying more toys, I sometimes can’t help it when I see really fun things like some Comic Book themed Hot Wheels Cars. I was drawn to the Scooby Doo/Batman, the Brave and the Bold because it was the Batmobile in the colors of The Mystery Machine. Then I saw the Spider-Man buggy which was even referenced and shown in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

I generally get the Marvel character cars or Star Wars character cars. I decided that I am no longer getting the Star Wars ones and just focus on Marvel ones. I’m also going for the Disney character cars. Sometimes I just can’t help myself. Especially when the cars look so cool.
