We love making colourful crayon cakes, they’re fun to make and when they’re done, they’re even more fun to draw with.
To make your own crayon cakes, arrange broken crayons in some paper cake cases like we’ve done below (we tend t use cheap silicone cases and keep some just for this but paper works just as well). If you’re feeling particularly creative you can arrange them in to coordinating colour schemes, last time we made these, Miss Frugal made one using a heart shaped silicone mould case and just pink and red crayon bits which was gorgeous and almost too pretty to draw with.
If you don’t have old bits of crayons to use, you can buy a packet for about 20p in one of the big supermarkets.
Heat your oven up o about 160 degrees, put your crayon cakes in and then turn the heat off. Our crayons took about 15 minutes to melt but I guess it depends on how many crayon bits you use as to how long you leave them in the oven. You need to get them to the stage where they have all melted but catch them before all the colours run into each other.
I’ll be honest, they don’t look much when they first come out of the oven but if you leave them for an hour or so….
….You get the most fantastic brightly coloured little crayons to draw with.
Have fun 😉
