*Update! We made more pianos and music notes using brighter colored crayon pieces this time! Do you prefer the brighter colors or the darker colors?

I have some chocolate molds in several different shapes.  I decided to try using them to make — crayons!  I had been saving up all my children’s broken crayons for this project.  I melted the crayons in a foil lined glass bread dish in the oven. You can see one of the molds I used in the picture below.

I tried using silicone type ice cube molds for the stars and hearts, but they couldn’t handle the heat of the crayons.  I threw at least one of the ice cube molds away. The chocolate molds* work the best.

These are tiny– about an inch, inch and a half tall music notes.*  I grouped the crayon colors into similar color groups when I melted them.

I gave these to my piano students last year at Christmas.  Can you see the glitter in the green piano keyboard?  I used glitter crayons for it!  My kids don’t like coloring with the glitter crayons, and I love the sparkle in my new shapes. I’m really happy with how they turned out!  They’re almost too pretty to use!

I’ve been saving those broken crayons to make some more again soon!  They would make a great gift idea for the little ones on your list.  The themed ones are good for any age– if they are interested in that theme.
