Happy New Year everyone!
For this year’s birthday project, the kiddos and I have made crayon letters that spell out each of their cousin’s names. We had plenty of old broken crayons and have had a great time deciding which colors to combine to create a personal set for each. Special thx to Grandma and the dancer for helping me unwrap so many old crayons (truly the longest part of the prep work).
Other than that, the longest part was waiting for the crayons to harden so they could be carefully peeled out of the mold.
- Remove paper from old crayons.
- Fill silicone alphabet molds with small pieces of broken crayons. (I learned that the very thick crayons need to cook longer, so best to use the regular size for even melting…pictured below, the thick yellow in the “D” didn’t all melt).
- Place molds on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
- Allow to cool and harden (30-45 minutes)
- Carefully pop out each letter. (the “S”, “M” and “N” seemed to be the most difficult letters to remove without breaking them…loosen up the letters by pulling at mold in all directions before trying to remove them.
