Fun Finds Friday: Car Muffin Tin

Sometimes I find things that are cool at the stores I sometimes shop at. Cause I'm cool like that sometimes.
You know, once I found these! I had to have them. And we still have them but they don't look that nice and new....thanks to sticky kid fingers.

 This is a pretty cool muffin tin to own if you have boys, and since I have 4 of them, this was a good investment.

 So I thought that is was a pretty cool find...until I googled. There is a certain online big retailer- I shall not say cause I did not fully join their associate program- but you can figure it out- or email me and I'll tell you- and they have this thing for the same price, plus shipping.
Apparently, I am not such a cool mom for not discovering this little gem sooner. Oh well...sometimes I'm cool like that too and find cool things much later than everyone else.
 So we made crayons. And it took forever to peel the papers off crayons for three of these guys. And a few razor blade cuts, because I used a razor blade to get the paper off.  Note: If you make car crayons, and you have a 2 1/2 year old obsessed with driving cars all over everything, you might not want to give him a car crayon. Just sayin.
This was a really fun muffin tin to find. I love finding different shaped muffin tins. And my boys love it! So maybe we'll make car shaped banana bread loaves next.
Thanks for reading!

Next time you do this, soak the crayons in hot water first and the paper will peel right off! :)

PS- They have these at TJ Maxx, too. Saw them the other night. :)

These are on Amazon too. Same price, and free shipping with Prime! I'm thinking the train or dinosaur one would thrill my two boys! I love the crayons!
