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!
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!
