Yesterday, I told you about my shopping trip
in New York City.
Here's what I bought:
All this week, I'm featuring easy crafts
from the book with a blah to TADA! slant.
If you have children, this photo
might be familiar:
Blah, broken crayons.
The first thing we need to do is peel off all the paper.
Let's make them like brand new, shall we?
Put the broken crayons in a nonstick oven mold.
I didn't have one so I used these foil cups (which
I will keep reusing for future crayon-melting).
You can put same colors together or mix
different colors in one cup.
Put the mold in a 250 degree oven...
And wait until the crayons have melted (about 5-10 minutes).
Turn off the oven and when the oven is completely cool,
remove the mold.
I tried this other option by carefully pouring the
melted crayons into this Ikea ice cube tray.
It's not oven-proof but can hold the heat of melted crayons.
Please make sure the mold you use will be strictly relegated
to crafts & never for food items or ice cubes.
Allow to cool & harden.
TADA! The crayons easily pop out.
I layered the colors to make crazy crayons.
Warn your children that these should not be eaten.
See you tomorrow!
