Recently we celebrated our son’s 7th birthday and I bet ya can guess what theme he chose?
You got it… LEGO’s!
With all the creative ideas I found, some more difficult than others, I thought these would be great for an activity we’d be doing as well as a fun goodie bag items, plus they aren’t hard to make!
Here’s how to make LEGO Crayons:
This method will work for making crayons in general. Gather broken crayons throughout the school year and save them. Or you can also use new crayons, especially if you can get them at the beginning of the school year for 25 cents.
What you need:
- LEGO brick molds (or any shape like butterflies, Mickey Mouse, mustaches, etc.)
- About 3-4 cups of broken crayons
- cookie sheet and foil
What to do:
- Get your molds ready (if making LEGO bricks, these are really great and inexpensive)
- Get your crayons
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Remove paper, this is the most tedious task, so have your kiddos help!!
- Place broken pieces of crayons into each brick mold, by color or just mixed up
- Place mold tray onto a covered cookie sheet and bake for about 5-10 minutes, or until melted
- Take cookie sheet out, let rest until hardened
- Pop out crayons and have FUN!! (makes about 30+ Lego brick crayons)
*note: These molds are hard to clean out but found a great tip here.
Have you ever recycled broken crayons into new ones?
