Fun (DIY) Crayons
Finally! A post! Sorry for not being online for over a month. School has been very busy and I haven’t had much free time to try out new recipes. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (I’m still trying to figure out why I decided to skip over blogging about the most food oriented holiday of the year…)! I went to Mexico for my Thanksgiving break, which was much needed to say the least! I’m planning on writing a stress-relief post this week for everyone who is currently dealing with finals week. We can do it!
That being said, here’s a little post that’s different from anything I’ve done for far – a craft project! This is what happens when you throw people in a room with a box of crayons and nothing to do. It turned out pretty fun, so I decided to post about it!
- Silicon ice cube tray
- Peel the paper off of the crayons you are planning to use.
- Break up the crayons into pieces and place them into the ice cube tray. Make sure the tray is silicon and not a regular ice cube tray!
- Place the tray into the microwave. It’s helpful if you put the tray on a plate, but it’s not necessary. Microwave for 5-7 minutes. Keep an eye on them – you can see when they are fully melted.
- Carefully remove the tray from the microwave. The tray/plate will be very hot!
- If you want to speed up the cooling process, run cold water under and over the tray.
- Once the crayons are completely cooled, pop them out of the mold!
