For anyone who was interested in how Miriam reacted to the scented and textured crayons that I made the other day this post is for you! :-)
To sum it up I am deeming this project a success. At first Miriam wasn't sure if she wanted the crayons or not but then I put them in her hand, put her hand to her nose and immediately her mood changed. She touched them with her mouth, rolled them between her fingers, smelled them and yes colored a bit. Although, the coloring was in fact "a bit" because all she wanted to do was enjoy the crayons as an object. She did like smelling the paper which was scented even more than the crayons were by the time we finished coloring. I was VERY happy to see that the paper was successfully scented because that made the process of "making" them a total success. The crayons you buy scented do not even come close to scenting a piece of paper as much as these did. In the end I think once she puts two and two together that it is the crayons making the paper smell so yummy and wonderful she is going to be a coloring lunatic!
My next step on the crayon making adventure is picking out a particular scent that fits each crayon. I have a feeling I am going to be up for a challenge, not picking the scents because I already have those down but finding the scents. Anyone got any good websites for finding scented oils for cheap?
