Toddler Play: Make Your Own Crayons

We love doing this little activity at home, because you can do it over and over again making different colours and shapes each time. And all it involves is a little chopping and melting.

You will need:

  • crayons
  • any silicone mold or cupcake wrappers

The shapes of your crayons depend on the shape of your mold. I usually use silicone cookie molds we have in the house, chopping my crayons and mixing the colours up to create multi-coloured crayons.

Find the full tutorial here. There are lots of variations of this activity, the method is almost always the same however, the shape and colour of your crayons totally depends on which crayons you use (plain colours, glitter colours etc), and the shape of your mold (letters, stars, hearts, alphabets, the list is endless). Hence you can re-do this many times using different colours and molds every time. 

I particularly love these DIY Lego Crayons from Mummy Style.
