eat! craft! live!

Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

…to make these crayons in the sun!

heart crayons

We’ve made these, given them as gifts, received them as gifts… Super easy – take small pieces of old crayons, put them in some sort of mold (here we used silicone ice cube trays), expose to heat to melt (in this case, we put them in the oven), remove from heat to let harden. Pop out of the mold and color!

Judging by the state of an errant crayon left out in our driveway a few days ago, I suspect this project could easily be accomplished by leaving the mold full of crayon parts out in the sun for a while.
