Once again, Alpha Mom with their great ideas: If you're hoping to keep those pesky picnic intruders (and biters) away this Fourth of July, check out Brenda Ponnay's neat idea for making homemade citronella candles!

Though Mom will want to handle all of the hot ingredients and melting, we have a feeling that your child will love bringing his old crayon bits back to life by crushing and crumbling them into smithereens. (Something the adults may enjoy just as much!)
