SMMART ART: Snowman Crayons
This might be a fun holiday gift for your child's friends.  Stars, cupcake tin, snowmen...whatever mold you can find.  Drop a festive crayon into a celophane baggie tied with a ribbon and gift with a holiday coloring book.

As you remove the paper from the broken crayons, name the colors together.  You can sort the colors to create single-colored crayons or mix them up for this rainbow effect.
350 degrees...keep an eye on them...

Put them into the freezer, or...

Carefully remove them from your mold (we broke a few). 
SMMART SCIENCE application- Observe as crayons go from a solid to liquid and then back to a solid state.  This activity demonstrates a
physical change, where the form of matter is altered but one substance is not transformed into another.
