Not Food Friday: DIY Shaped Crayons
- Crayons Ideally, you’d use old, broken crayons – I didn’t have those, so I used a box of 24 Crayola brand
- Oven safe silicone molds in whatever shapes you want
- Knife & cutting board
- Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
- Peel the wrappers off your crayons. This was trickier than I anticipated. Apparently they glue them on now. When I was little I remember the wrappers falling off.
- Chop your crayons into small pieces. I tried to keep the colors together, but my 3 year old helper wasn’t so worried about grouping.
- Sprinkle pieces into the molds. I might have tried to make some patterns, but again, my 3 year old helper didn’t care so much.
- chopped crayons filled 24 heart and star shapes.
- Once the molds are full, place the trays onto a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. The longer they melt, the more the colors swirl, so that’s up to you.
- Once done, remove from the oven and let cool completely. We put ours in the freezer for about 15 minutes to speed up the process.
- Because the molds were silicone, the crayons easily popped out.
