I had a blast making these crayons and by the sounds of it so have many of you. Aren’t they easy? For Christmas I bought some super cheap silicone muffin tins at the dollar spot at Target and they turned out great and eliminated one step, which is always a plus!I wasn’t the least bit surprised that this activity came in at number 2 on our best of 2008! Hmmm what will be number 1? Tune in tomorrow!
- 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 Micahel’s for less than $2 !
- Take the paper off the crayons, and break them into smaller pieces. Place them in a muffin tin . * Some readers have had the wax bleed thogh the liners, foil liners will avoid this.
- Melt. Our oven was set at 220, and we watched it like a hawk with the oven door a lot. It will smoke if it’s too hot.
- 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 !
