Making Crayons

To make your own crayon designs you start by taking all the paper or labels off your crayons which took very fine motor skills and concentration to do-fabulous activity for busy toddlers!
Cut crayons into "pea" sized bits and place in your favourite moulds. Cheaper crayons work well for this don't waste your washable type crayolas as they seem to leave a oily film layer on top.

Fill them up to 3/4 way to the top and place in oven on 75 degrees Celsius for approx 15 mins or until melted

After they are melted leave them on the bench to cool then put them in the freezer for a few hours. Pop them out of the moulds and you have your own unique crayons, great size for toddlers and fabulous party favours!
