We used jello molds, of which we have 4, so I wasn't going to be sad to have one "ruined" to make crayons. The kids helped me peel the crayons, what a dream come true for them. I cut the crayons into little bits to help them melt more smoothly. I sprayed the molds with cooking spray, and put the molds in a water bath to keep the wax melting even after I took them out. I microwaved them for about 2 minutes then poked the unmelted bits with a toothpick, to submerse them in the hot wax. I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
We were able to make 40+ so we kept one set and gave the rest away to kids at G's birthday party.
P took a picture of these other creations of ours. It has been a little chilly here lately. We even saw flurries on the windshield on Saturday. Our family in DC has 2 feet of snow. We're chilly.
I'm very pleased with how these creations are turning out.
