My boys and I had the great pleasure of spending a morning with Brendon Purdy-Smth of Mr. B’s Makery, in New Minas

Brendon is part of CAPRE (Community Association of People for REAL Enterprise) that supports the realization of personal potential for individuals with intellectual disabilities through person-centered planning, entrepreneurship, innovation, partnership and community engagement.

Brendon, with the help of support staff , Barry, likes to make things. And, one of those things is Crayzons!

The boys and I went to Brendon’s office/workshop to interview him for a story for the Advertiser, but we ended up having our very own workshop!

Barry walked us through the step-by-step how Brendon makes the Crayzons from recycled crayons!

The boys completed each step of the project from stripping the paper from crayons, and crushing it through “Chewy”.

Then, then the crayon pieces are added to moulds so they can be baked.

The final step was helping to package the Crayzons and preparing them for sale.
