DIY Shaped Crayons – recycle your old, broken crayons into fun new shapes!
I love DIY projects. Especially DIY projects with kids. I’m always having to borrow kids to play with – luckily I have a lot to choose from between family and friends.
I was walking through Forever 21 (of all places) and saw silicone ice cube trays on clearance. I picked up a heart mold and a star mold and decided to make crayons. Since it was back to school time, crayons were like 50 cents. So, total, this project was under $5 and really fun for my 3 year old helper and me. I think they’d make a great gift for a kid, too.
My pictures turned out pretty dark – I didn’t think to take many before I sent my helper on her way with them. But they turned out really pretty and were fun to color with.
Make sure whatever molds you get are oven safe (most are up to 500 degrees). It should say right on them.
what a cute idea!
