Give your Crayola a new lease of life with this project. These make the perfect size crayons that are chunky and easy for little ones to grab for a crafty project. And it is not that difficult to do! Perfect as a party project for kids!
- Foil cupcake liners or silicone cake molds
- Bits of crayon
- Baking sheet
- Put the pieces of crayon into cupcake liners or cake molds on a baking sheet. Experiment with different sizes of crayons to get different effects. Little pieces will create a dotted look; large chunks, a bolder look. (And regular crayons tend to run together more than Cray-Pas.)
- Set the oven to its lowest setting, and put the baking sheet on the middle tray. Leave it in the oven for about 5 minutes, slightly longer if necessary. (Crayons will melt much faster than Cray-Pas.) Take out the tray when the bits are just melted. If they liquefy too much, the disks will come out a dull brown color.
- Remove the baking tray from the oven, using mitts. Leave the crayons to cool and harden completely, then carefully remove the crayons from the liners or molds.
this is such a GREAT idea! will try it soon! ;)
btw, i first bought a grey pupsik pouch from you when i had my son joel in 2007. after we moved away from Spore, i still sometimes take a look at your website and drool over the pretty (girly) pieces. finally, we're expecting our 2nd kid this Oct - and it's a GIRL! so i've been drooling over your site again for something for her to wear to my sis' wedding next Feb. i hope my baby girl grows up "faster" and i can buy her the singlets & pretty skirts which look sooo good on toddlers! love the new strawberry caramel pouch too! ;)
