Crayon Fun

After seeing a photo of a crayon tutorial on Pinterest I thought I would give it a try.  Why not, I already had a broken and peeled crayon collection from my little ones.  In the photo tutorial it showed chopped crayon shavings on a cutting board.  Wanting to simplifiy and not have to clean up a crayon mess I simply broke up the already broken and peeled crayon pieces.  I then oiled the insides of a mini cupcake pan with cooking oil and filled the broken pieces about halfway inside.  I baked at 350 degrees for about 3 to 5 minutes, I then turned the oven off and let the pan sit in the oven until it was completely cooled.  Actually the reason being the oven mists were upstairs in the dryer, so it worked out great.  It was so easy, I simply flipped over the pan and they fell right out.  My little ones really enjoyed them.  My youngest did try to take a bite out of one!  Even my teen daughter joined in on the fun thinking these were just the coolest thing.  After they were done coloring my youngest carried the crayons around on a plate all evening. 

Crayons are such fun and the only thing better than crayons are bright beautiful photos of crayons!  Here are some neat examples of beautiful photography of crayons and fun crayons.  Enjoy!
