DIY Star Crayons

I've been seeing these chubby crayons around for a while and finally tried my hand at them for some kiddos this Christmas (my darling niece included). These are incredibly easy and really all you need are crayons (I threw in some glittery and shimmery metallic ones along with regular), a silicone baking mold and an oven. And maybe some glitter for good measure.

The most time-consuming part of this was peeling the crayons. The actual baking part only takes 10-15 minutes on 225 degrees. I found putting the mold directly into the freezer after removing from the oven made the hardening time go by much faster.

Once you're done, tie a stack of crayons together with some twine or ribbon and you're ready to go! (Side note, don't use the mold for baking edible goods once you've made these crayons.)
