Hot Rocks 2012

I don't think I have mentioned it but at the beginning of the summer the kids and I made a big list of things we thought we could do this summer that would result in this being the most fun summer ever. It is about 60 items long and we are about half way through.  And it has been a lot of fun.
 One of the things on the list is hot rocks. We have done this one before but Josh wasn't old enough, it is a little dangerous for little kids. So we had to go at it again. Basically you clean your rocks, stick them in the oven at about 425 for about 15 minutes then take them out and touch them with crayons that you have peeled the wrappers off of.
 Fun! Fun! Fun! The crayons liquefy and really do become like paint. It is great activity for the rare rainy summer day!

We loved this activity when you introduced us to it. Who knew then that we would have kids too little to do it in the summer of 2012! It's such a cool thing to do. We still have wax-coated rocks floating around here somewhere!

Thanks for sharing this idea with us. We loved it. It will be a repeat on our future summer lists.
