DIY Easter Egg Crayons

Good morning! I’m sharing a blast from the past post today for Easter Egg Crayons. I haven’t had a chance to do anything for Easter this year – I feel pretty much behind on everything. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

We have lots of little crayon bits floating around … just waiting for Henry to eat. I’ve been wanting to melt them into new crayons for a while. Then I saw this silicone egg baking sheet on clearance at Joann’s and thought EGG CRAYONS!

The directions are simple:
1. Peel the paper off the crayons and break them into small pieces.

2. Put them in a 300 degree oven for 5-10 minutes.
(If using a silicone baking tray, I highly recommend putting it on regular baking tray as it is a little tricky to get out when melted.)

4. Cool slightly on the counter and finish in freezer for 15 minutes or so

5. When completely cooled, pop out of mold and get your color on!

I love the detail from the mold. They will be so great in the Easter basket next to all of the chocolate :)

    The last time I made these kind of crayons, they looked fabulous, but the pigment seemed to gravitate to only one side, and the other side was colorless when you tried to use it. Any ideas of why this happened or how to rectify it next time?

    Those look like a lot of fun for the kids. I can’t wait to try it. I love your blog i’m so glad I found it. I’m now following. I would love it if you stopped by to visit me @http://www.arosiesweethome.com/
    I host a Sunday linky party every week if you would like to come and share.

    What a cute idea. I had thought of doing something similar with a silicone mold that was meant for making ice cubes. I chickened out because I wasn’t sure if it could go in the oven…hmmm. Now I might have to try it, but I get scared of chemicals and such…so maybe not.
    Anway, thanks for the cute idea.
