Many of you may have made melted crayons in cake pans before, but here's a fun and summery twist on the old standard...
I've picked up several of these cheapo $1 ice cube trays from the dollar store - in all shapes and sizes. For this project, I used one with sea and beach shapes.
I broke up some crayons (if you have kids - I'm sure you already have lots of broken crayons laying around!) and put them in the molds.
I then microwaved the entire mold for 30 seconds at a time until the crayons melted...
IMPORTANT NOTE! Do NOT put mold in oven. Don't even think about it! These dollar store finds are plastic, not silicone, and will melt. Just trust me on this one... : )
Once the crayons have melted, allow to reset, then gently pry out of molds.
Hooray! Summer fun crayons! : )
