There is an obvious trend that you may see in my life,
I LOVE TO REUSE AND RECYCLE!!!
Sooo...this weekend, Oliver and I made some SKULL CRAYONS!
He is two, so naturally he has more then a few handfuls of broken crayon bits lying around that he really doesn't like to use anymore. Of course he still LOVES to color, we just need some bigger crayons he can wrap his cute little hands around!
I had these skull molds lying around, that I bought to make candy cupcake toppers around Halloween, and thought they might be a fun little mold to make crayons with.
The most tedious step was peeling the paper off the crayons...I am STILL digging colored wax out from under my nails...ewww.
Once that task is finished the fun begins!
I let my son put whatever colors he wanted to mix into the silicone molds, after I lightly greased them, of course.
Then we baked them in the oven at 300 degrees until they were melted. Next, I took them out and sat them on a heat safe surface to harden and cool.
Once cooled, we popped them out of the molds...easier said than done...and we got busy coloring and trying them out!!!
He INSISTED I take a pic with his little foot, I complied.
peace, love and color.
