Hmm...I don't want to waste/use any. Cheesy  I'll make someone take pix of what the kids color!  It's next weekend, so the wait won't be too long.

Okay, I didn't know if you had made any extra or not.  I'd love to see a picture - it interests me to see if the colors blend as they are used or if they come out as seperate colors (hope that makes sense.)  My sons used to have pencil crayons with multiple colored lead and it was interesting to see what they came out like.

I had those! thats where the rainbow idea came from Cheesy

D'oh! I never in my life thought of BUYing crayons to make these. Somehow, I thought you could only scavenge broken ones.

My life is changed!

I think those are cupcake tins. They come in star shapes as well, in the baking aisle.

MissHawlet has made some super awesome crayons by melting similar colors together and pouring them into molds:

I suspect that any candy mold could be used.

these look so fun! i know there use to be toys that did the same thing but they usually ended up in a normal crayon shape.

I wish I had this idea before I got married (well, no not really I was running ragged before the wedding as it wass, so it was good I didn't have anything else to do  Cheesy). We had homemade coloring books for the kids too (have you seen how to make a photo into coloring page? I think this is a really neat touch.). Anyways, those are super cute!

Aw! Smiley

I got mine at Krogers (it's a grocery store).  Reynolds (the foil people) makes them and they were in the baking aisle near all the muffin pans.

Stupid me...when I organized my craft room, I threw out all of my old crayons.  Argh!  So yeah, I just bought some at the $1 store.
