DIY Crayons!

Taking boring old crayons and turning them into something fun that children want to use is super easy! When my kids were just learning to color I would make them the big fat shaped crayons to help them learn. But because the children are 8 and 7 years old they get to pick which crayon mold they want to use and what crayon colors to mix. These are made by kids for kids!! Materials you will need; silicone molds, crayons, bowl with water, baking sheet, oven-preheat to 250 degrees.

Drop the crayons in the water and let them sit (as you see they will bubble). Leave them in the water for 5 to 10 minutes; this helps the crayon wrappers to peel easily. Some of the crayons are plain old stubborn and will not come off no matter what, so you will have to peel them

Now peel away the crayon paper

They are so pretty just like this!

Break the crayons into tiny pieces and be sure to fill the molds with the broken crayons; as you can see my children lacked a bit on the crayons and did not over fill. Also, be sure your crayons are in the molds, Kristopher missed one and it went onto the baking sheet (which is okay with my because that is our crayon mold baking sheet) Bake at 250 degrees for 10 minutes or until the crayons are completely melted

Super pretty! Let them completely cool; I left mine alone for an hour

Here they are! Are they not super pretty!!! The Christmas trees look amazing!! And the color mixture is beyond cool!!
