Car crayons!

I made these for my friend’s son. He loves cars and he enjoys drawing (unfortunately mainly on his parents newly painted walls…) So I thought these would be perfect for him! Also they are really easy to make!



You will need:
Non-toxic crayons in a range of colours
Chocolate mould (I chose car shapes)
Empty tins
Stick to stir with (I used a wooden chop stick which you get in the packs of sushi)



Step 1: Take the wrappers off the crayons and break them down into smaller chunks. Place them into the empty tins.



Step 2: Bring a pan of water to boil and place the tins into it.



Step 3: Melt the crayons down and use a stick to mix it. You are aiming to melt it down so it is easy to pour.



Step 4: Pour into your chocolate moulds. Repeat the process for the other colours.



Step 5: Place the tray into the fridge and leave for an hour or so (this is probably much longer than what it needs to be). But when they have cooled down they should just fall out of the tray easily.




Next I wrapped up an old box in some nice paper (it looks a little better than just giving some crayons in a bag). Ta-dah! The finished gift!
