Simple Positive Play Party

There are so many muscles in our hands! Opportunities to color, play with playdough and thread a bead help work those muscles so we can write and play in more intricate ways! 


Here’s what’s in a kit we sent home after our Simple Positive PARTY! 


Homemade Crayon

To make your own, 

  1. Preheat Oven to 200 degrees

  2. Gather your broken crayons and put them in a bowl or bucket. 

  3. Add warm water and a little dish soap

  4. Agitate the water

  5. The labels will start to come off of the crayons

  6. Remove the remaining paper

  7. Break the crayons without paper into small pieces

  8. Put your crayons in a mold on a tray

  9. I use silicone molds, cupcake molds with liners works, too

  10. Place the tray in the oven 

  11. Check in after 15 minutes

  12. Timing will vary depending on mold size

  13. When it appears like the crayons are completely melted, remove from the oven and let cool completely. Enjoy your crayons! 


Please note: Melting crayons in the oven does create an odor. Work in a well ventilated area.

How to Make Your Own Homemade Dough:

Food coloring


In a small pot, add flour, salt and cream of tartar. Stir. 

Add Vegetable oil

Once your mix appears like dough, take pan off of heat

Remove dough from pan and let cool enough so that you can knead it.
