What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by selecting which crayons you’d like to use. We’ve tried neon, classic, and this awesome bundle of crayons. We’ve found that half the fun is experimenting with different color combinations.

Once you’ve selected your crayons, begin by peeling the paper off. The kids always love this part!

Once all your crayon papers have been removed, break the crayons into smaller pieces.

Now it’s time to fill up your silicone molds.

Once your mold has been filled, place it into a pre-heated 200-degree oven for about 10 minutes (melting time may vary depending on your oven and size of molds – we suggest keeping a close eye on your crayons while they are in the oven).

Once the crayons have completely melted, take the mold out of the oven and allow to fully cool.
