I'm sure you have probably seen these crayons all over the Internet by now. I first received a babycenter e-mail with the idea in them and I swear by that afternoon every crafty blog had tried them.
I decided it looked like fun but I had a couple of problems. First of all, I couldn't afford the fancy baking trays. So I bought the cheap silicone ice cube trays and guess what? They worked. Second my oven was currently out of commission. So... I microwaved them. It worked great. They had to be in for about 4 minutes.
After microwaving, I let them cool and harden. (I just had to show you my mess of crayon shavings.)
Here they are all finished. I think I am going to send them to my artsy sister.
Now I guess I am officially on the bandwagon.
