DIY Elmo Crayons

Liam had a Elmo/Sesame Street themed Birthday Party and I wanted to add something special to the goodies bags. I have always wanted to make my own crayons. I thought this was a perfect excuse!

Instructions:

1 Preheat your oven to 250.

2 Use a knife to cut off the paper on the crayons. If you don’t do this, you will end up frustrated with the paper not coming off!

3 If you want multi colored crayons, crush into larger pieces. I snapped them into 4ths. A little smaller would have helped them be flatter in the back. If you want one color you can crush into smaller pieces. If you crush into smaller pieces for a multi colored crayon, it will bleed too much and end up making one color.

4 Put into oven for 10 mins. Any longer will make the multi colored turn into one color.

5 Let it sit until fully cooled and pop them off. The small mini Elmo molds took about 30 mins to cool. Don’t freeze them, it makes them crack.

6 Color away!
