Use those old broken crayons or a box of new ones to melt into a fun holiday gift! What kind of treats can the kids take to school, and what are we going to give their teachers?! This is always the first thing on our minds when a holiday/school party rolls around. Both of these ideas really made answering that question really simple...CROCK THEM! We also loved the idea of not adding even more candy to the kid’s bags at school so the crayons were perfect!
Used 6-quart slow cooker
- 1 Box of Crayons or 50-75 pieces of broken crayons
- 1 6 cup heart shaped muffin tin (small enough to fit in slow cooker. Silicone works best)
Fill muffin tin about 2/3 full of broken crayons (no wrappers) with the color combinations of your choice.
Place muffin tin into slow cooker, cover and cook on HIGH for about 45 minutes.
Turn slow cooker off and remove crock onto hot pads. After about 10-20 minutes of cooling you can place crock in refrigerator to speed up the process.
Once crayons are cooled off take pan out and easily "pop" out the heart shaped (or get creative for other holidays) crayons and you are set! Attach to a homemade Valentine's card or place in a bag and attach a ribbon!
