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!

Materials needed:

  • Crayons
  • Silicon ice cube tray
  • Microwave


  1. Peel the paper off of the crayons you are planning to use.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Carefully remove the tray from the microwave.  The tray/plate will be very hot!
  5. If you want to speed up the cooling process, run cold water under and over the tray.
  6. Once the crayons are completely cooled, pop them out of the mold!
