Joshua has so many crayons I don’t know what to do with them all. I try to be a clutter free person, but I also don’t want to be wasteful. I was in Josh’s closet organizing when I came across two medium sized plastic bins of crayons. I didn’t want to throw them away, so I decided to reinvent them and give them away.
I got the idea from http://huppiemama.com/?p=126. I melted the crayons into bunnies. The pictures above do not give these cute crayons justice. I also found a mold for a chocolate bunny and that gave me an idea. Josh cannot eat the chocolate bunnies because of allergies. so I made him a big crayon bunny.
I started to cut the crayons down with a knife, but I found it was easier to shave the crayons with a potato peeler.
I put the silicone mold in the oven at 210 degrees for 15 min. I put the giant bunny in the microwave for 2 min.
I let them cool for about 20 mins.
The kiddos will love them!
