Making flower crayons!

Pin It

This is such a fun craft to do with kids. All you need is:
  • Crayons
  • Silicone Baking Cups (Use ones that you don't need to use for baking! I got mine for $1 at Target.)
  • Oven

Preheat the oven at 200 F.

Next, there is LOTS of unwrapping to do. My girls loved to help. We just used pieces of crayons that we had laying around. You could also use a box of brand new crayons.

We tried to put similar colors together.

Put the silicone baking cups on a cookie sheet, heat them in the oven for about 30 minutes. They should be completely melted, so you shouldn't see individual crayon pieces anymore.
Be careful when you take them out of the oven and keep the kids at a distance!

Then you need to wait till they cool down. I made it go a little faster by putting the whole cookie sheet on our cold garage floor. It took less time than I expected for them to get hard. Then, it's easy to just pop them out of the silicone molds.

Aren't they pretty?!

Putting them to use!

Time to start something new...

Pin It

Since I thoroughly enjoy looking around at other blogs for crafts, recipes, decorating ideas and more, I thought I'd give it a try and start my own blog. Just to share some ideas and finds, since I like it when others do that, too.

As a craft-loving stay-at-home mom of two little girls, I have definitely "no time to be bored", so thought that would be a suitable name. Welcome to my blog!
