Christmas Crayons

I'm not a very crafty person but I saw this a few months ago and I've been dying to try it. I thought our Christmas Party on Saturday would be the perfect opportunity! My plan is to make these chunky crayons, cover our kitchen table with butcher paper, and let the kids draw pictures of Santa, reindeer, whatever they want. I'm trying to come up with as many kid friendly activities as possible so they aren't just running amok in my house :)

I found the silicone baking pan at Target for $1 and bought a 64 pack of crayons [used 4 crayons per tree]. I put them in a 375 degree oven for about 7 minutes.

I love these so much I'm definitely making some for our Sunbeams class to use! You could make these out of any shape.

  1. They turned out sooo cute! And yes, what is wrong with you??? ;)

  2. Thanks! I don't know! I nursed Holden then couldn't go back to sleep due to the "To Do" list running rampant in my head. It's been good though. I have gotten SO much done!

  3. Those are awesome! I totally have to make them for my nieces!!

  4. that is the coolest idea!! i'll definitely have to try this when i have little ones :)
