A Rainbow of colors….Crayon art part 2

Hello everyone and welcome to the second part of this What’s Pinning?! entry.

This project was part of the whole crayon art craze. I have to admit I enjoyed these two projects a lot and so did the kiddies. This project was intended for those leftover crayons that have been broken. Instead of discarding them they can be saved, melted, and left to harden. Voila…you have a new rainbow crayon. I didn’t have any old crayons and I kind of deviated from the normal way to do these as I didn’t have supplies on hand. Usually a silicone mold would be used to make these but I couldn’t find them in my area and I really didn’t want to pay anywhere from $8.00 - $15.00 plus shipping for something that I wouldn’t use often. So I used mini plastic Tupperware. I’ll admit I wasn’t sure how it would hold up in the oven but I gave it try and it did quite well. I want to give a BIG thank you to one of mine and my kiddies favorite you tube channels yoyomax12 for her instructional. As always you can find the link for these instructions below. Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest so we can share ideas.
