This is awesome! My 3 year old DD will love it!

Back to school sales will be coming up in August and real Crayola crayons will be CHEAP. Last year I got 24 count boxes for less than a quarter a box. I'm sure the cheap crayons will melt just fine but for coloring, the Crayola are the best. The dollar store ones and even Rose Art are mostly wax and don't have very rich color. They also don't glide on paper very well.

Can you tell we color a lot? We've tried them all and I'm a Crayola snob.  Grin

I agree!  I've made some star shaped ones with cheapo crayons before.  They came out looking just fine, but don't color very well.  So, I ended up throwing them all away.  I'm tempted to try again now with crayola crayons.

BTW, these crayonosaurus crayons are AWESOME!  They would make such cute party favors!

These are fantastic!  I wonder if it would work to make these in those little candy molds, too.  They usually have some cool shapes of those.  I'm trying to think of someone I could give these to if I made them - I don't really know any little kids but I totally want to try this project! Smiley

I would say any oven safe pan would work. The candy molds i have are thin plastic and wouldn't be ok for oven use.

Oh, that is clever! I especially love the dino cake-pan - where'd you get that? My sisters are always breaking bits of crayon...and now those bits can be used for something more productive than as ammo in The Great Crayon War. Awesome!

what temperature do you set the oven on and do you preheat?

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I was thinking, does it really matter if you use a gas, or an electric stove.
I once tried making those CD votive holders..... didnt work too well, I was thinking it may be because of my gas stove..........?

K3lly - my stove IS gas, IMO it works much better then the electric stove i had before. I think that's a personal preference more then anything. Like lots of things the first few trys are tryal and error. Maybe start on a lower setting and work your way up if your having  oven problems.
