I can't tell you how many times I've seen DIY Crayons on Pinterest....too many to count. We had a cold rainy day today and decided to give it a try. It was a perfect activity for Kensi to do. We always have crayons on hand but they often break because she's little and has a strong grip so why not make her some fun shaped crayons that won't break as easily. 
We started by removing all the paper from our crayons, then sorted them by color. I used this heart shaped ice cube silicone mold from IKEA. Many craft stores carry these types of molds in a variety of shapes for every season and holiday. 
Fill each compartment with your crayons and bake them at 250 degrees F for 15 minutes. I love mixing different variations of one color to create a swirl. Like light and dark purple or yellow and neon green. Be sure to monitor the crayons as your oven may be different from mine. 
Remove from the oven and let them cool and solidify again. Remove each crayon from the mold and you're ready for drawing! 
These are great for party favors, valentines, back to school, holidays or even just a fun way to spruce up a Saturday.  

Happy Melting!
