Homemade Crayons

I was looking at a couple favorite blogs and came across what I wanted to make for Emma’s party favors for her birthday party. Homemade crayons. Super simple and really cute to me. I’ll add a couple other cutsie things to thehir goodie bag but I really had a lot of fun making them.

If you’re interested, go ahead and try it- SUPER SIMPLE AND FUN!!! :)  (But don’t try it if you’re going to Emma’s party, you’ll get one!) I used Trav’s old crayons from when he was little. Can you believe it?! His mom saved his crayons! I’m making one for Emma so she can color with the same crayons as her daddy. Of course I’ll take a picture of them coloring together. :)

Here is his old coloring box. Remember these?! You can barely see his name written on it. :)

The longest part was taking off the paper. Tedious but kinda nice listening to music and soaking up sun streaming through my windows while Emma naps. (it’s a great day today!)

After that just put them in  rubber molds. I have heart shaped ones that I snaggede a couple years ago in the $1 Target area. Perfect shape for a Princess ‘Thank you!’

Pop these bad boys in the oven 200′ F for about 30 min. Take out, let cool and pop them out! :) Mine are still cooking, so tomorrow I’ll post her coloring with them. Have a great Wednesday!!!
