Valentines Contest Crayon Hearts

Project Description

Name of Pattern Crayon-tastic! Link to Pattern www.pbs.org/parents/craftapparent/2010/08/crayon-tastic.html What was your inspiration? There may be nothing new about recycling crayons (after all, my mom was doing it in the 50's), but there's something about molding something old into a new version of itself that's so uniquely...now. This project is a usable, versatile craft for all ages. The finished product makes great teacher gifts, favors for birthday parties, or back-to-school treats for the kids. Have fun experimenting with different color combos and tray shapes--I personally, have my eye on on a robot ice tray for our next batch--and use this opportunity to chat with your children about everything from the basic chemistry of wax properties changing, to where colors fall on a color wheel. Have fun!

What you will need

  • Unwanted Wax Crayons (wrappers removed) Silicon Ice Cube Trays OR Candy Molds Plastic Cups & Wood Skewers (microwave version only)
