LEGO Crayons

In addition to the LEGO Soap I made for my sons 4th Birthday party, I also made these super cute LEGO crayons.  I try not to include cheap plastic junk in the goody bags.  I know we don’t need more of that in our house, and I’m sure it’s the same with our party guests too.

I purchased these LEGO molds on Amazon for $18.99 (they qualify for the Free Super Saver Shipping).  I plan on using these for lots of different projects so it was a bit of an investment.  But I think well worth it.  You get both the LEGO mini-figurines and the LEGO blocks.  And they are so cute!

Amazon LEGO Molds $18.99

I bought 3 boxes of crayons (48 in each box) from the dollar store.  Being such cheap crayons I wasn’t sure if they would work, but I’m happy to say they did.

We peeled and peeled and peeled.  It took awhile but I wrangled my mother in-law and 4-year-old to help out.  It was actually kind of fun.

Once the crayons are peeled break them into about 4 pieces each.  For the block LEGO mold I put in 2 full crayons into each mold.  For the mini-figurine mold I put in 1.5 crayons into each little man.  I found this was the perfect amount.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 F.  Remove from the oven and cool on top of stove for about 10 minutes.  Once cool enough to move place in the fridge to solidify.  They easily slide out of the molds once they are fully hardened.  We did have a few LEGO men lose their heads, but I just put the broken ones back in the molds and re-melted them back down.

Each child at the party will get a handful of each.  I think the kids will love these.  And for $3 it’s a very inexpensive goody bag gift.  And one that is useful and isn’t more toy junk!

  12. Little by little the sharks are biting off the outside of the
    raft. When you play a download based game you are going to experience better
    graphics, better sound effects and a gambling experience that cannot be matched by no-download based games.
    The game is quick and intense, and the gameplay
    is straightforward enough for beginners, yet
    has enough depth to keep experienced players entertained.

  13. Even if they no longer eat sweets, older people often remain fiercely
    loyal to the candy crush saga level 30 help brands they enjoyed as kids.
    This will help you find a machine that is perfect for your
    situation, since you know that a professional is steering you in the right direction. There are
    also some tricks that work well in this game to help you achieve a higher score.

    The team should be lucky to have such an opponent
    in week 3, for a game they couldn’t win would present serious challenges down the
    road. Those who are ready for a change at quarterback
    aren’t ready for a change in the quality of regular
    season play the Eagles have enjoyed over the last decade.

  16. Ahaa, its pleasant conversation regarding this piece of writing at this place at this
    weblog, I have read all that, so now me also
    commenting here.

  17. I love these and am planning on making them for as b’day party favors. But, before I buy the mold I would love to know once you use the mold for crayons can you re-use them for chocolates? Or, are they pretty much crayon specific? Thanks!

    • Hey Beth yes you’re right once you use the mold for crayons it leaves a residue on the molds that won’t come off. Or at least I can’t seem to get it off. So your mold will be restricted to just crayons. Kind of a bummer.

        • It didn’t stain the molds but it left a waxy residue that I’ve never been able to get off. So you’ll never be able to use the molds again for anything like chocolates or anything edible. Kind of a bummer.

  18. Great idea! I tried it with crayons from Dollar Store from brand RoseArt but they appear to have separated in melting. The “exposed” side (meaning the top side from molded side) doesn’t write barely at all and in the darker colors, the exposed side has a very light color as if the wax separated. Did this happen to you at all?

  19. These are great! I have the crayons cooling now :-) How long do they need to stay in the refridgerator for?
    Thank you for such a fun and creative idea for favors!!

  20. you are an excellent crafter for boys. i love it. if i have a boy one day, i’m going to need to visit your blog for the best boy ideas. thanks for linking up!

  21. Oh these are great! We use to do a less fancy version of this as kids, my mom actually caught the microwave on fire melting the crayons down. I am so glad I saw this and can do them with my kids (hopefully no fires!) Thanks for linking up on Super Sweet Sunday

  22. These are so legit! I do not even have a little guy and I still want to make these. I wonder if Amazon has princess molds…. look at you all inspirational! Found you through the DIY Dream link party. Thanks for being awesome. xoxo

  23. I love these molds! I always thought making molded crayons would be more difficult than it is (for some reason or another lol) but you made it look easy! I will def be looking into some different molds to try this at our next party! I love DIY favors! They are much more personal!
