Jumbo Crayons

One project I did this weekend was make JUMBO crayons with Dan. As you can see with the previous post I have a HUGE amount of stuff to accomplish and we decided to add something else to list. They came out great. I think it took between 11 and 12 grayons for the snowmen chunky ones and 9 and 10 for the Christmas tree ones.

Crayons peeled and in the silicone molds...We baked them at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. I forgot to put tham on a baking tray soooo
melting crayons

cooling ( like I said above I didn't put them on a tray)



we chilled them int he freezer and had 6 Colorful Christmas Trees


And 6 colorful snowmen. These made JUMBO crayons.

Really cute molds, I especially like the tree! Those crayons are huge, lucky kiddos!

thanks Stacey. they are from target and were only $2.50. They were better than the $10.00 from Joann's too. Miss. Paula I have some in my etsy store, I plan on giving them to customers too..

My elementary school art teacher used to do this with the tiny pieces of crayons. He didn't have cute molds though; he used mini aluminum pie pans. I remember loving the swirls of colors. Thanks for bringing back good memories! :)
