Ever since our melted crayon art, N & M have been asking to melt crayons every couple of days. We finally melted crayons again this week, but instead of melting crayons onto a piece of paper, I thought we’d try melting crayons into some silicone moulds.
We broke up some crayons
and placed them into the moulds.
Then we put our hair dryer to work. We used a low fan setting so the crayons didn’t blow away.
We waited for the crayons to set.
After a few minutes, when the crayons had hardened again, we popped them out of the moulds and wow – we had some really cute crayons!
M created some crayon grapes.
N created some crayon ducklings.
They admired their crayon creations,
played with them,
and rearranged them around a bit.
Who would have thought melting stuff with a hair dryer could be so fun?
We may try chocolate next. Yum.
N & M: 3 years, 4 months.
