One of the blogs I follow Mrs. Mommy did this with her daughter a few weeks ago and made me really want to make some for Hudson. He loves to color and this was the perfect craft for us to do together.
*lean from my mistake. Spring for crayola, don't buy the cheap crayons. They are nearly impossible to remover the paper, even after soaking them in warm water*
**also, don't mind my pictures. They are all from my phone :/**
|All ready to make some toddler crayon disks!|
|We put them in warm water to help get the paper off. You know something is wrong when crayola crayons sink, but the cheap brand floats!|
|Broke up all the crayons and put them in cupcake pans. Most are color coordinated, a couple I let Hudson put whatever colors he wanted to.|
|I put them in the oven at 250 for about 15 minutes, until all the crayons are melted.|
|I let them cool over night, and this is the end result.|
|They were a big hit!|
So far he loves these. They are a little harder for him to put in his mouth which is a giant plus! This was a great activity, and so fun! These would even be a fun homemade gift.
