Crayons for Students

Hello! Like many other teachers out there, I am already thinking about "back to school!" I do enjoy the extra time in the summer to be creative with cards, scrapbooks, and craft projects. I used old crayon pieces to make happy face crayons to give my students when they come to our August parent teacher confernces.

I used my candle warmer to melt broken pieces of crayons. While one was melting, I had another color on deck, ready to go. The most time-consuming part of this project was peeling the crayons!

I poured the melted crayons into a happy face candy mold. It only takes about 15 minutes for them to cool enough to pop out. I teach in a Catholic school, so I thought I do something along the "Jesus loves you" theme. I will probably add some cuteness like coloring or a ribbon and a personal note to the students from me. I just put this one together quick to give you an idea. Thanks for looking and have a super day!
