DIY crayons

pinterest inspires me!  it inspires me to spend an hour of my evening peeling crayons with my husband in order to melt those exact crayons into a new form.  i must say the end product was worth it.  and to be honest, stew and i had a good time.  i am pretty sure stew wasn't overly excited about our new purple grout(oops), but i am hoping it will eventually fade.  
if you're up for a fun night in, here's what you'll need:

  1. chocolate mold- i bought mine at wal mart for $2
  2. crayons- i bought 2 boxes of 48 crayons from the dollar store.
  3. large pot
  4. empty tin or glass jar- i used an old apple sauce jar (let's hear it for recycling)
  5. something to stir the crayons- we used plastic knives

peel crayons

fill pot with enough water that the jar/tin can remain standing as you put the crayons in jar to melt.   we left the stove on medium heat the entire time and it got the job done.

be sure to stir the melting crayons.  once the crayons have melted, pour the mixture into the chocolate molds  and place in the freezer.  after about 5-10 minutes your crayons will pop right out! 

we ended up with around 30 crayons!
