I found this cool way of reusing all those leftover bits of crayons so I went on a hunt.
Here’s where i found them…
At the bottom of pencil cases
In the toy box
In my hand bag
In the car door
The list goes on, the point is:
Like most things in life they are there to be discovered if you are looking for them.
What we did
I chopped the crayons into tiny pieces
My little helper tried smashing them with his wooden hammer
We filled some heart shaped silicone cake moulds with little fists full of shredded crayons
Next I put them in the oven at 150 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes
Then they went in the fridge for about an hour and then they were ready to pop out.
The silicone moulds are ruined.
I can make more lovely crayons but i will not be making cakes in them again.
If you use a tin tray this will not be the case.
