Thanks to Laura I was introduced to this awesome blog . While I was browsing, I ran across this post. It looked like the perfect project for a lazy Saturday afternoon. It's super easy and I have a feeling that older kids will like making these crayons as much as the toddlers will enjoy
eating using them.
You can either color coordinate your crayons to make traditional colors, or you can mix it up and make multi-colored crayons. We went with the more traditional route.
The directions are easy. Peel the crayons, break them up and arrange them in a muffin tin (preferably one that you don't mind getting wax all over).
Bake at 250 for about 10-15 minutes. Turn off the oven but let the tin sit so the crayons can solidify. Remove from tins. You can stick them in the freezer for a bit if you have trouble getting them out. Viola! Don't they look so cool?
Peanut thought so too.
See? Perfect for tiny hands.
