Upcycled Crayons. Perfect for little hands.
I went through Brooklyn's crayons and pulled out all the broken ones as well as all the restaurant crayons from Red Robin, Olive Garden, etc.
I peeled them and broke them into smaller pieces and separated them into color groups in old muffin tins. Then I baked them in the oven at 300 degrees in 5 minute increments until they were nice and melted. After they cooled a little I put them in the freezer to help them to pop out of the tins.
I forgot about them and after several hours they all looked like this! Oops!
I popped them back into the oven and remelted them.
Apparently you can't freeze them for more than a few minutes if you want them in one piece. Who knew? Well, we all do now;)
Caramel Macchiato. Mmmmmm!
I love that the color is lighter on the top and darker on the bottom.
It gives a sweet two tone look.
I can't wait to get these into my sons little hands!
I am linking up with some of these amazing blogs. :)
