DIY Crayon Favors
Making your own crayons is a popular craft and a great activity you can do with your kids. I used a mini cupcake mold to make our crayons, but you could also try using a fun shaped silicon mold as well. My niece and I had a lot of fun making up a big batch for her birthday to give to her friends as favors. I also illustrated a printable coloring book for everyone to color in. All the kids loved receiving these at the party, and my niece, Callie, was excited to give everyone something she made herself.

Ingredients
  • Old, broken crayons
  • Mini cupcake tray (or other oven-proof mold)
Instructions
  1. First you want to peel the paper off all the crayons. You can soak them in water to make them easier to peel.
  2. [img src=”https://bdn.evermine.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/crayonfavors3.jpg” width=”680″ height=”453″ class=”alignnone size-full” title=”How To Make DIY Crayon Favors”][/url]
  3. Next, break them up into small pieces and place them into the mold. You’ll want to be careful not to fill them too full. You don’t want to overflow the pan.

  5. Preheat oven to its lowest setting. I set mine for 170 degrees. Bake the crayons in oven for approx. 30 minutes, or until they are completely melted. Let cool completely (about 1 hour) and pop the crayons out of the mold. I used an x-acto knife to loosen any crayons that did not come out easily.
