This is the Crayon Project that I have been working on. I saw it on a blog before X-mas (whoever you are thank you for sharing...) and wanted to give it a whirl for the boy's birthday party.

Silicon letters- had to order them online
Crayons- who does not have a mountain of them
Peal off label
Break into small peices
Bake at 250 for about 10 minutes
Let set for a really long time- couple of hours
Pop out of tray


I will bagged these up and handed them out a the Birthday Party.
Wonder how they actually colored????
At least they were cute......

I have never seen them done as letters. They turned out great. What a great idea for a party favor.

That really is clever! Love the marbled look of the finished product.

Great job mama!

I had every intention of making those, but didn't get to it this week.

We were going to do them in mini muffin tins, then attach them to a heart cut out of craft foam for Valentine's.

I stink at this whole mom craft thing...
