Hello everyone! It’s Lauren from La Whimsy Writer here with another guest post. Today I have a craft project that is perfect for Valentine’s Day and kid friendly. We are going to take all of the old/broken/unwanted crayons that are lying around and turn them into something amazing!

Supplies needed for this project: 20141224_173835

  • An assortment of crayons
  • Silicone muffin tins (ours was a heart-shaped tin)

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 275

Step 2: Remove the wrappers from the crayons

 

Step 3: Break the crayons into small pieces, mix the colors up, and fill the muffin tin with the mixed up pieces

Step 4: Place the tins in the oven for 10-12 minutes

Step 5: After the crayons are completely melted safely remove them and set them aside to cool

Step 6: Let them cool for 25-30 minutes then put the trays in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes

Step 7: Take them out of the refrigerator and they will pop right out of the mold

That’s it folks!!! We have gone from this:

The kids can be involved in all of the parts of the craft that don’t involve the oven and they can see their old, unwanted transform themselves into something beautiful that they can give away to friends and family for Valentine’s Day. While you’re taking care of all the parts that involve heat your itty bitty one can hang out in their highchair playing with an activity book that you can store inside of The Highchair Organizer.
