Lego Crayons!

I saw an article about valentine crayon gifts. The idea reminded me of my sisters and myself as kids.

We'd grab foil, fold up the edges to make a tray, put crayon shavings from the sharpener in it, then put it on top of a lightbulb in the living room to melt it all together to make a new crayon. It was fun, until the one day we accidentally spilled the creation & had to fess up!

So, this craft struck a chord for my kid-at-heart! Here's how!

First, sort the crayons by color family, remove the paper & chop them into smaller pieces.

Then, place an even number of pieces in the cavity of the mold, and bake at 250° for about 15 minutes. Ooooh, melty!

Let them cool completely & then admire the colorful fun!
