I’m always looking for an easy DIY or craft that I can do with my kids. With the school starting, life has gotten busy…really busy. In the early days of September, our big guy was invited to a birthday party where the parents asked on the invitations to bring homemade gifts rather than presents. It’s always easier to go out to the store and quickly pick up a gift but this birthday request, allowed us to take the time from the initial school rush and create something together. So, thinking cap on…we made heart shaped crayons.
This is a really easy DIY that’s cute for your little ones to give as a gift or just use for crafts.
How to Make DIY Crayons
Ingredients: Crayons & Silicone mold (ice cube tray or muffin tray). I picked up these little heart silicone molds in the baking section of HomeSense. I’ve also seen similar ones at the dollar store.
Directions: This is a great way to use up your broken crayons.
1. Take the wrapper off the crayons, break them into small pieces (if they aren’t already broken) and place them in the molds. Bake at 250 degrees for about 10 minutes.
2. Place the molds in the freezer to let them set and pop them out. Voila…super cute heart shaped crayons.
All you need is a cute little box, ribbon and attach a colouring book for a cute gift.
Keep it Beautiful.
