I guess you get what you pay for.







This is Dallas, he is 14. He can be very responsible when he wants to be.

This is one thing he likes to do...Play on the computer.
There are times when he is left in charge of his younger brother and sisters. And when he is watching them, he is not to be on the computer.

This is what the girls did while they were in his care.

They took my candle that was on my warmer, and dipped their hands into it. And made little wax molds. I have no clue how they did that with out burning themselves. Here are the little molds they made. I am still trying to figure out how they were able to get their hands out of the wax too, without breaking the mold. They did say they put their hand in water after they dipped it.

I guess it is time to take the computer cords with me when I need to leave him to babysit.

The molds are pretty neat. I wonder if there's a way to save them?

Can you imagine your answer if they had asked if they could do that craft first! You really do have to save them.

OK, I did this when I was in high school. I dipped my hand repeatedly in the wax to get a good thick covering. Then by little wiggling, you can slide out. But after that, I poured the mold full of plaster - then baked it on a lined cookie seet to melt the wax covering. The final step was to paint the thing and give my Mom a candy dish in the shape of my hand. That creepy thing sat on her coffee table for years. I had forgotten all about it until I saw your little red hands.

Thanks for the memories.
