Am I the only mama who gets tired of finding broken crayons? I feel like our crayon box is overflowing with broken crayons but I hate throwing them out because it just feels was wasteful so…..we put all those crayons pieces together to make bunny butt crayons (it was Easter and I couldn’t resist)!
This was so fun and I can’t believe I haven’t done it before now! I grabbed as many crayons as I could find and removed all the paper. Bentley (6 yrs. old) started off helping me peel the paper but became quickly frustrated so I gave him another job while I peeled them.
Love all the colors!
Once they were done it was time for his favorite part….breaking the crayons! It’s important that the crayons are broken in small pieces so they melt evenly.
We placed the broken pieces in this adorable bunny butt mold we found at Micheals and melted them in a 250 degree oven for 12 minutes. I totally recommend placing the mold on a cookie sheet before placing them in the oven. Once the crayons had melted we allowed them to cool before removing our new crayons.
Next time I make them I will be sure to cut up the crayons even smaller!
My little guy was so excited to start his next masterpiece!
We loved the way all the colors blended together! And seriously, how cute are these?
These would make the cutest party favors! So many possibilities! Have you made your own crayons? I would love to know your tips!
