the way i did these was even more fun than the muffin crayons. i got one of those cheapie shape ice trays from ikea...i separated all of the crayons by color and melted them by color. i poured one layer of one color and let it cool...then i took the next layer of color and poured it on the already cooled first layer. after that i popped the whole thing in the freezer and they came out easy peasy. the kids freaked out [mom had a playgroup over that day] and again great for little hands and the cool layered effect is awesome.



close up!

Aw man, words can't express how giddy you made my inner child.  I had to hit "this rocks" because it does, oh so much.  I *must* make some!  You are my hero.

This is great. My son brought home his stuff from school (last day today!) and all his crayons are of course, broken. I shall melt them and make cute shapes for them to use. My 4 year old will love it!

Love this idea!  The cool thing about a star shape of course is instead of one sharp point to draw with, you have FIVE!!!

That's so much easier than what I used to do...
When I was about 10, I had a HUGE bucket full of misc. crayons...so I sorted them out into colour groups and melted them in the microwave (NOT good for the nuker!) in a Pyrex dish and poured the melted wax into a metal cookie cutter placed on wax paper.  It was fun, I made crayon shapes for gift baskets, and you could theme them.  But I gotta remember this idea, My son's 2yr b-day is around the corner and this'd be GREAT for a gift bag!
