Day 2 of our 25 Days of Gifting is geared towards the little ones you may have on your Christmas list this year. The Weaver family is a clan of 7, and since I am the oldest of five, I still have younger siblings to gift for. Although Lizzie, the youngest of the Weaver children, may just be growing out of crayons, I just couldn’t resist doing this DIY project. (Also, it happens to be one of the easiest projects we have set up…so no excuses! Just kidding…but really.)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- A baking sheet mold (Either silicone or aluminum)
- Unwrap your crayons. I found that the cheaper the crayon, the easier this process will be. So go raid your local dollar store!
- Lightly grease your pan. Since this is a Christmas project, I used a snowflake mold pan.
- Break your crayons into small pieces and fit them into your molds.
- Set your oven for 250°, and allow your crayons to melt completely. This will be about 7-10 minutes, or until you can see the tops of the molds fully melted.
- Once your crayons are out of the oven, allow it to sit for a minute, then place it into your fridge for 5 minutes to cool.
- Once cooled, you will be able to flip your pan and your reinvented crayons will pop right out! If not, give the bottom of the pan a little tap.
Hope you enjoy this simple, kid-friendly project! Better yet, I hope your little gift recipient loves their new craft supply. Don’t forget to share with us your versions!
