Lego Crayons

lego crayons

Lego crayons! This is so cool, melting crayons into small lego men! I wish I could do this when I grew up many years ago (the 80’s). Anyways, this is a great activity to do together with kids 🙂

Supplies: Crayons (wax), a silicon mold (I bought mine at eBay) and an oven.
Here’s how you do it:

  1. Remove the paper from crayons you’re gonna use
  2. Break the crayons into pieces and place them in a silicon mold. One crayon is enough for one lego man.
  3. Put the silicon mold in an oven for about 15 minutes at 150ºC
  4. Take the mold out of the oven and let it rest in room temperature until the wax hardens.

  1. This is a very cute project for the lego lovers in my life. I looked at those molds when we visited legoland, now I need to get one. Thanks for another great idea, Erlend!

    Brilliant! 🙂 What if I add glitter (a lot!^^) and make a brooch out of it? But crayons would probably leave mark… Hama beads? Clay? What do you think? Inspiring anyway!

  3. Great Idea !!! When I was a child, it was my favorite toys and secretly , I still dream to play there…

    Erlend, I just discovered you today and I LOVE your blog and the wonderful creations you so generously share! I am especially fond of your choice of molds for this crayon project – I mean, who doesn’t love Legos? I have a method for melting the crayons when I want to make many molds at one time that you might find helpful; I use tin cans to hold the separate crayon colors, and place them in an electric skillet on medium heat filled with water. Once the crayons(wax) melts in the tin cans, I simply pour the colors into the molds and let them cool. Thanks for all of your lovely projects, and keep up the great work! I can’t wait to hang out hear more often and get my creativity on!

      Thank you for your feedback btwmommy! And what a great tip; melting in tin cans – I’ll save that for later, thanks 🙂

    Hi Erlend,
    thanks for this cute inspiration. I instantly bought a mould and got going! It worked quite well, but strangely my crayons came out solid at the bottom and waxen on top – it seemed like the original crayons had seperated… They still made my year 6 pupils very happy (They were my summer break treat.) but I’d really like to know what I did wrong… 🙁 Any idea?
    Greetings from Jeannette
