Dino Crayons

So much going on yet such scarce blog activity.  I blame it on Time, or the lack thereof...  But between pre-Christmas festivities, frantic present making, even more frantic workings on The Project That Shall Remain Unnamed (for now), a new puppy, an infinite pile of logs to split... and of course a child to feed and entertain and a house to pretend to clean... I give you Dino Crayons.

So quick and easy: preheat oven to 200 degrees -- gather all those broken bits of wax crayons lying around (or buy a bunch and break them up) -- place broken bits into a silicone mould tray of your choice -- bake until the wax melts, about 10 mins -- leave to cool and set thoroughly before popping out your crayon shapes.

These dinos will be setting up camp in my son's Christmas Stocking, and if I didn't have more than enough to be getting on with, I might think about making up a few more batches to play around with shapes and creating marbled effects by mixing colours...maybe even adding glitter...

  1. i'd seen this idea before with regular ice cube trays. i don't know why i never thought of using fun shaped trays before?? i've seen star trays which would be great because of the pointy ends. good for drawing :)
