DIY Rainbow Dinosaur Crayons-- Fun Party Favors for Our DINO-Mite Dinosaur Party!

We always save our broken crayons for use in other projects. They always seem to add up pretty quickly between my kids and our play group playdates.  We decided to use this bundle of broken crayons to make rainbow dinosaur crayons for my son's dinosaur party.
I purchased a few of these silicon dinosaur trays off of Amazon to make some dinosaur chocolates and dinosaur ice cubes. They also work great to make crayons in!
I used a knife to cut the larger pieces into smaller pieces.

My son filled the silicon tray with the little crayon pieces, filling each compartment just over the top.
We put it in the oven at 230 degrees for 15 minutes.
Let the wax cool completely before removing them from the tray.
They came out absolutely adorable, don't you think?
I will be putting these little guys in the goodie bags, as well as inside of the plastic eggs for our dinosaur egg hunt!


  1. Great share! must pass on and the little ones in my family will love this :)

    1. Please pass it on! Making rainbow crayons are so much fun and the possibilities for the shapes you can make them in are endless! The dollar store usually carries seasonal silicon ice cube trays!
