Fishy Crayons

by - Wednesday, September 21, 2011



After seeing the idea of melting crayons on Meet the Dubiens I thought I'd give it a go as we have a lot of broken crayons hanging around the house.



So I took the wrappers off the crayons and broke them into small pieces.





Then added them to a glass pot inside a saucepan of water which I then put on a medium heat until the crayons had melted and then took it off the heat. 





I bought an ice cube tray from Ikea in the shape of fish. I chose the fish as I thought they would still be easy enough to hold. 



I poured the melted crayons into the mould and let them to set for a few hours. They crayons stain the mould and obviously the mould was bought for this purpose and won't be used for ice cubes! 


Once they were set, they were ready to come out of the mould and ready to do some colouring.



My daughter loves to just line them up in colours too!
