Are any of you procrastinators like me? If so, you are in luck! If you have the supplies to make cute little crayons, I have cards for you!

If you don’t have time to make cutsey crayons, you could even just rubber band together 3-4 crayons and give those with the cards. I’m sure the kids will still love it!
I love making crayons and have done so plenty of times before: birthday parties, student gifts for Christmas or end of the year, even in the kid goody bags at my brother in law’s wedding!
You can see a tutorial I did over on Classroom DIY.
Well, this time around, I wanted to try a different technique that have been all over Pinterest – using silicone ice trays in the oven. You see, I usually melt the crayons in an old double boiler and pour them into candy or soap molds. I’ve even poured the liquid crayon into silicon molds before, and it worked great.
- Silicon ice cube molds (I have a heart one from Ikea)
- Crayons (I used super cheap ones I got for free at an educational conference)
- Cutting board
- Cookie sheet
3. Chop crayons into little pieces. I actually could just break mine, since they were the cheap kind. If you are using Crayola, you’ll have to chop them.
