We made some of these for Valentine’s day in many colors, but after I created the Earth Day Poster with the Heart Earth (see other post)
It got me to thinking– that heart earth looked like the crayons. So my son and I decided to make some Earth Crayons. We went through our stash of odd/end crayons. I cut the crayons with a knife so that he didn’t need to, and was easier for him to remove the paper.
We grouped up the crayons with 1 darker shade with 1 lighter shade if we could. (ex: lighter blue shade with a a darker green, or lighter green shade with darker blue) So it would show up. They came out pretty cool. My kids are excited to have new Earth Day crayons. That is what Earth Day is about – recycle. And these crayons were the rejects that nobody wanted. We have so many crayons and we have picked thru the colors for other projects.
We used the heart silicone molds that we found in the 1.00 area of Target back in February. We set the oven to 225 degrees. We baked it for 7 minutes. Once removed we let it sit to cool/harden.
If you are in a hurry. You can put them in the fridge to speed up the process.
Then once they are hard. Just POP them out.
