DIY Glitter Lego Crayons :: Everything is Awesome

My kids love the Lego Movie and love playing with Legos so I thought for this week's craft, it would be fun to make some Lego crayons with Kenzie. She loves art and can draw and color for a long time. She also brought home her pencil case full of broken (and dusty) crayons from her school which needed to be replaced with new ones for the school year. So what to do with the old and rejected crayons?

You can literally make any sort of shape you like if you have the mold for it. I found the neatest little molds on Amazon that were perfect for our project (you can even use these molds for chocolate candies!). Sort through your child's supplies and pull out all the broken, old, bits of crayons that you'd like to remake into something awesome.


PRINT DIRECTIONS


Materials
  • Stash of crayons that are broken, old, used and neglected. Ok you can use new ones if you'd like. 
  • Lego Bricks Mold
  • Lego MiniFigure Mold
  • Glitter

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
  2. Take the paper off of all of the crayons.
  3. Break into small pieces and drop into each mold. Make sure to fill as much as you can to get it full once melted.
  4. Using a small spoon, sprinkle glitter over each mold. 
  5. Carefully place each Lego mold into the oven and heat for about 10-15 minutes until the crayons have melted.
  6. Allow to cool completely. You can place into the freezer for about 10 minutes to allow for easy removal.
  7. Pop out of molds and color something awesome!

I do have to mention that Kenzie grew tired of taking the paper off the crayons and preferred to just break them up for the molds instead. She loves all the glitter that comes off onto her drawings because they add just the right amount of sparkle for her awesomeness.
