Need a fun activity during winter break to do with the kids? Here’s how to make your own star crayons! #BoredomBuster #KidsCraft
Making your own crayons is a fun project to do with the kids, especially older children. You can also make them ahead of time and surprise little ones with the finished result. For best results, follow the instructions carefully.
You can change the colors by simply swapping out the color of the crayons you start with. The Star Silicone Mold gives the crayons their shape. Blue and white starts with silver glitter would be so pretty, too! Do you have a girly girl in the house? Make a batch of pink, purple and gold hearts by using a Silicone Heart Mold. There are so many great possibilities!
