Friend Gift From The Kids

Now that my kids are 2,3 and 4 they are finally starting to get the whole present thing!

They really, really want to give something to their friends.

So...I came up with something that would not break the bank...and good for all ages!

First, get one of the silicon molds from the dollar store, or target. (I got mine from target)

Second, I had my kids peel each of the crayons and then...break them (that was their favorite part:))

The we put about 4-6 crayons in each snowman head...

You bake it in the oven at 300 degrees for 15 minutes.

Let them cool and then the kids can pop them out...

Aren't they so cute?

Then put a few in each bag...and they are all ready to go!



  1. I need to do this with my kids. We have a gallon sized ziploc full of all the broken crayons.

  2. I love them!!! thanks for such a cute idea, I have a huge bucket of little crayons and have been wondering what to do with them!! I will give this a try! Thanks :)

  3. Adorable idea--the kids will love the snowmen and so cute for packaging. I'll be trying this with the grands!

  4. Oh what fab little festive crayons! So cute!
