How to make your own Lego Crayons 

Note – Adults should prepare and make these lego crayons for kids to enjoy. Kids can help break up the crayons if you’d like to involve them in the process.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Remove the wrappers from your crayons. You can do this by placing them in a bowl of water and letting the wrappers peel off easily once wet or by carefully scoring the crayon wrapper with a knife.

3. Now break the crayons into about 5 pieces each or use already broken crayons.

4. Place one crayon inside each mold sticking straight up and down (you can fit more this way). Fill the mold as shown above.

5. Place your mold on a baking pan and into the oven, heat for about 3-5 minutes. Watch to ensure the crayons have melted. It may take more or less time depending on your oven and the crayons used.

6. Once done, remove the mold from your baking pan and place on a flat surface in the freezer for around 20 minutes, or until your crayons are cool and solid.

7. Carefully remove the crayons from your molds by stretching the sides of the molds and pressing up on the bottom of each Lego man mold.

Now that your lego crayons are done, now is the fun part! Let your kids play with the lego men and of course color with them! I don’t know why but I feel like coloring with lego men is just so much more fun!
