|Pile of restaurant crayons|
Last Valentine’s Day Spencer got a card from his buddy at school which included a molded crayon, and I’ve been stuck on the idea ever since!
You will need
An ice cube mold or mini muffin tin ($2)
|The smaller you chop them the more swirly they'll look.|
|This is about 10 minutes in. They took a long time, probably because they are mostly cheap crayons.|
Unwrap and chop crayons. Place crayon bits in mold. Bake at 170 degrees until crayons have full melted- for me this took a solid half hour. If you want, use a chop stick to gently swirl the colors together. Cool completely and remove from molds.
And that’s it! I think they are pretty cool.
|My men! The muscly one lost a hand, but I can just put the pieces back in the mold in the oven.|
$2 for as many crayons as you have the patience to unwrap.
I saw a set at Target for $4.99.
If you have a kid in your life, Try It! It's an easy project, and you could make them single color, or group colors together (red/pink, blue/green, etc).
