My kids had a lot of fun coloring with these. They are already asking to make more! So now we are starting to collect all the broken crayons again. I think they are secretly breaking them on purpose now. πŸ˜‰

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Instructions:

Place crayons in luke warm water and let sit for 10 minutes, or until the wrapper slides off. Remove wrappers and place on a paper towel to dry.

Break crayons into small pieces and then place in the crayon molds. Place mold on a baking sheet and then cook in the oven at 200Β°F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until melted. You can try to melt in the microwave, but please note not all microwaves will melt them properly. The oven is a safer method.

  1. Do you still have this printable available? When I click on the link it goes to the heart LEGO printable. P.S. — Love your stuff! Thank you for posting!Β 

  2. So I bought the Lego molds and made crayons only 3 times and the mold ripped..this is very upsetting because I thought you made it sound like they could keep being reused for this over and over again..plus I was making them for party favors for my sons bday and now I can’t finish ???

    1. Oh no! I’d contact the Lego company and see if they’ll send you a replacement. I’ve used mine multiple times over and over without issue.

  3. that looks amazin, Im planning to make them but do you mind telling me the size of the treat bags? thanks a lot

  4. I am making valentines for my kids class and want to make about 40 lego crayons. Β  Do you know about how many crayons I would need?

  5. I was wondering if you had an editable copy of the Legobtags available. I’m a teacher and would love to use these for Open House gifts but would need to modify the words. Thanks.Β 

    1. Hi Kim! Yes it is still available. Are you clicking on the “LEGO printables” link under free printable? Make sure your computer allows pop ups and it will open in a new window. πŸ™‚

  6. Tanya, could you tell please me you purchased those Lego molds. I am going to try to try an use Pam spray and hopefully that will work and they won’t rip. I tried the Lego link an Amazon the page is no longer there.
    Thanks in advance.

  7. Hi Jamielyn, thank you so much for the adorable gift/favor tags! I have visited a few other sites that make me go through multiple complicated steps to download a free printable…and yours was super straight forward. Thank you for creating such an adorable and easy to access printable for a fellow mom {fist bump}!

  8. Hi! I love the video! I never knew how easy crayon making was until I watched this video! I have always bought molded crayons online. My son would love to do this together! Can you please share the sticky tags that you used for the tags? What kind of clear bags did you use? Thank you!

    1. Hi Chelsie! If you scroll down in the post, the printable is available as a PDF where it says “LEGO printables”. I just got clear treat bags from the dollar tree! πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve heard that you can melt coconut oil, pour it into the mold, heat in the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes, remove carefully, let cool, place in refrigerator or freezer to harden completely, pop out shapes, wash remaining oil off mold with warm water and dish soap.

  9. I love the idea but I’d recommend that you remove your instructions for microwaving the crayons as I just tried this and after 5 minutes (only half your recommended time), the kitchen was full of thick black smoke and a few of the crayons had turned to a charcoal-like substance and burnt holes in the silicone trays (which only happens at very high temperatures). I think the bits that burnt had pieces of black crayon in them – there must have been something in there that the microwave didn’t like… The parts that did melt properly did work and look great, but next time I’ll be using the oven. Not trying to be critical but I wanted to warn others of this danger. A scientist friend has pointed out to me that microwaves work by heading up water molecules and are therefore not made for heatimg up things like crayons πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for your comment. So sorry it gave you troubles! We will make a note that the oven is a safer option.
