Making crayons

Fun day making crayons 

Ela and I had a great time making crayons while Daddy had a long work day. I get a little stir crazy being home all day and all night alone so finding fun crafts to make with a toddler helps pass the time. 
We found this fun craft on Petite Lemon Blog. This website also has the cutest custom Big and Little Sister outfits.  The crayons turned out really perfect and Ela enjoyed watching and helping with the process. I cant wait to make more shapes! 

Put any broken crayons into a silicon baking dish.
This one is from Ikea, we also have a flower and fish one but chose the hearts for fun! 

Ela helping pick which colors go where. We made them multi-colored but you can also color coordinate. 

Bake at 225 for 10-15 minutes and look what comes out!
Let cool for a while, I even stuck them in the fridge to speed it up.
They turned out perfect!
