{clever} edible crayons

i'm gearing up for back-to-school
and i'm flipping out over these edible crayons!!


at first i thought these were taffy pieces...
nope.
pretzel rods + candy melts = SUPER EASY & SUPER ADORABLE!!
but wait...
you can get the FREE printable labels!
make a whole bunch of them and insert into a plastic pencil box for presentation or gift-giving.

i'm thinking:
back-to-school parties
teacher gifts
crayon themed birthday party
LOVE'em!

for the full post & details go to Gourmet Mom On-the-Go!
and thanks Simply Creative Insanity for the link in your "Back-to-School" Freebies!
(She's even included the adorable Teacher Thank You cards from my friend Kim!!)

KEEPING IT REAL
Hmmmm....how do I adapt these to accomodate my older girls who are both out of grade school?
Let's face it - they won't think it's the least bit cool to bring a teacher a gift in the first place, let alone show up to school with edible crayons. *wink*
Oh the things Ella has to look forward to when she starts school in a few years. (or is it really just ME that's looking forward to being able to do things like this again)?! Yeah. It's me.

I love this Edible Crayons idea! I teach pre-k and we use simple recipes to teach reading, math, sequencing etc. This is so cute for our back to school unit! Thanks for sharing!!!
