Sometimes it’s the simplest of projects that lend the most amount of fun. And these little gems are about as good as it gets. DIY crayons where your children’s imagination can take center stage. We opted for fun alphabet letters because our 4 year old is learning to spell but you could really do anything…hearts, stars, x’s and o’s. All you need is a batch of old crayons in your favorite colors and a few simple candy molds. And if you’ve missed any of our holiday DIY’s, just click here!

old crayons
small metal pan or tin for melting wax in the oven
plastic spoons
chocolate alphabet molds
baking sheet
tin foil

Step 1: Peel all the wrappers off your crayons and group together by color family. Put each group in its own tin and place on a baking sheet lined with tin foild.
Step 2: Heat the oven to 200ºF and place the tins inside. Let melt for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Stir the wax with a plastic spoon, and pour into the chocolate mold. Let cool (or place in the refrigerator for faster cooling).
Step 4: Mix all the colored crayons into fun word strings & bag up to put in stockings.
