Re-Crayoning

We said we weren’t going to go all out this Easter.  Ha!  We were fools not to factor in spring being in the air and pinterest being full of cute makes.

Here we go with the first of our Easter basket crafts.  It’s just too impersonal to hand over a chocolate egg and be done with it (^-^)

Bunny crayons. Simpler than simple. All you need are old crayons and a silicone mould.  We got ours from the Pound Shop.

Chop up the crayons and place in the mould.  Preheat your oven to 200°C and pop them in for 6 minutes. They’ll become satisfyingly molten and vivid.

Leave to cool completely then pop out and admire your work.

We decided to go for individual crayon colours in the hopes that the bunny shape would feature clearly, plus our dotes are little sticklers for an unmixed palette but a mismatch of old crayon ends could make for a fun experiment.

We’ll be putting ours into fillable plastic eggs.  Lets hope our dotes don’t try and eat em (^-^)Logo
