DIY Star Wars Crayons
Are DIY crayons easy to make?
Yes. This is a super simple, beginner-friendly craft. Your toddler can help! You will obviously need an adult to work the oven, but kids can help peel the labels, break the crayons, and pop them out of the silicone molds!
These are a great party activity (bonus: kids can take them home as party favors).
Do DIY crayons work?
These ones do! The quality of the writing you’ll get from the repurposed crayon depends on the brand. If you use a higher-end brand, you’ll have better quality output. If you use a mix of brands, you can expect that the crayon will write differently based on which brand is being used at the moment! However, this will be fine for the kids.
Do DIY crayons write in rainbow colors?
Yep. If you use a variety of colors, you’ll get a fun rainbow-y drawing when you use these crayons!
What do I need to make DIY crayons?
- Crayons (this is a great way to use up old, half-broken, funky-colored crayons that aren’t getting any love)
- Silicone mold (this is the set I have and used for these crayons)
OK, let’s jump write in to this super simple DIY Star Wars crayon craft!
- Star Wars Silicone Molds
- Crayons (any crayons you have around the house will do)
- Cookie sheet
- Heat oven to 250F.
- Peel crayons and break into little pieces.
- Put crayon pieces in molds.
- Place mold on cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until crayons are melted.
- Let crayons cool completely. To speed up the process, you can stick the mold in the freezer or fridge for a few minutes.
- Once cooled, pop crayons out of molds.
- Draw something awesome!
The crayons don't need to completely fill the molds. They'll melt and fill in the little nooks and crannies!
