Lego Crayons

Cost: FREE plus the cost of the mold and crayons if you don't have them
Time: about 10 minutes for each mold

For Valentine's Day this year I have been trying to come up with a way to make non-candy treats for the kids at school, while spending next to nothing.  We came up with the idea of lego crayons using the lego mold and some old crayons that we have duplicates of or are broken.

This is also a great idea for party favors or candy making!  After cleaning my molds I might use them to make chocolate lego people for cake/cupcake toppers.

Here's how we did it:

1.  Collect the crayons you want to use
2.  Peel paper and chop into pieces
3.  Put crayon pieces into mold making sure to overfill each figure with crayon pieces.  Microwave for about 6-8 minutes (until pieces are melted)
4.  Cool in freezer or refrigerator

TIP:  Do not worry if you break a piece while taking it out of the mold.  Just put it back into the mold and remelt.  Good as new!
