Lego crayons!

My 4yo had so much fun making some lego crayons out of his old broken crayons using a sicilone ice cube tray. You could make any shape you like depending on what ice cube trays you have available.


To do this, simply take the wax crayons you want to use and make sure all the paper is removed. Break them into small pieces and overfill each compartment of the mould. Place the mould onto a baking tray and then place in the oven at 160degC for about 8-10 minutes, but keep a watch and check after 5 minutes – remove as soon as the wax has melted. Leave to cool on the side and once completely cooled, remove from the mould. You’re left with a colourful army of lego men!

I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
