Crayon Fun


Instructions can be found at Crafty Daisies.

I had too much fun with these!


They are great for little hands.

I bagged them up for two sweet children that are having birthdays this week.

Two other sweet children, that happen to live in my house, were charmed with these new crayons as well. For them, some rainbow ones were in order.

Did you know that you can also melt crayons and pour them into candy molds or metal cookie cutters and make all sorts of fun shapes? I think this could be addicting...

So cute. Love the colors. Did they wreck your muffin pan?

Yes - my muffin pan survived! :-) I just soaked it in warm water and then used an sos pad and all the crayon came right off. I have since read that you can use cupcake liners and then peel the paper off the crayons. I might try that next time.

i used to make the muffin crayons for my church. i would collect all of the broken crayons from the end of the year. I would take them home, and put them in my muffin pan. I used my electric skillet and a bit of water in the skillet then put the muffin pan in it til they melted. Put the muffin pan in the freezer til it was firm.

I ended up dedicating a muffin pan just for that. But I did this yearly for quite a few years. (oh I go to a very large church so we had plenty of crayons)
