In preparation for my son’s 2nd birthday , I have been playing around with making fun loot bag gifts. Here is my favorite so far, candy mold recycled crayons. Super easy to make, kids love to use them to color and a huge bonus being that my son who eats every art supply under the sun seems to leave these alone!
- Gather your materials. You will need some crayons ( about 4-5 per mold), an oven , disposable muffin liners, and a candy mold. I bought this candy mold from Micheal’s for less than $2 !
- Take the paper off the crayons, and break them into smaller pieces. Place them in a muffin tin .
- Melt. I used paper liners but the no pan needed liners are the best.
- Pour into the mold and let sit for an hour or until it’s cool. I used a cookie rack under the mold to keep it stable.
- Pop out of the mold.
- Get drawing !
