Oh Toodles! If you don't know where that's from then there is a good chance that either A. Your child is older or B. Your childless.
Ethan's birthday is in 2 weeks and we have decided to celebrate his second birthday Mickey Mouse style. I'm making most of the decor on my own but was stumped when it came to party favors. Then I came across this and knew I had to do it.
Lucky for me I had tons of left over crayons thanks to my last crayon project . So the only thing I really needed was the molds and the bags. The molds you can find on Amazon and get for less then $6 with shipping. The bags I found on sale at Michaels.
Break up in a million pieces and fill the tray, ensuring you have a little overflow in each tray. It took about 6 crayons per mouse head. Now learn from my mistake and take some aluminum foil and place in the center ( between the 4 heads, and under each corner because when you put it in the oven and it starts to melt the weight of the liquid crayon can make the silicone tray dip, thus spilling crayon all over your cookie sheet. ( probably also a good idea to line your cookie sheet with foil just in case)
Place your crayons in the oven set on 350 for 15 minutes.
Once they are melted set your cookie sheet to the side for about 15 minutes until it all starts to solidify. **Trust me you don't want to move the trays before hand, you'll just spill stuff** Once your mouse heads are partially solid again you can stick them in the freezer to hurry the process along. Wait 20 minutes and remove the heads from the tray.
Now when your removing the heads start by gently pulling the silicone outward away from the heads and then push up on the nose. You want to remove the nose/mouth first and the ears last otherwise the ears will break off and you have to remelt it.
Feel free to mix and match colors to create really unique looking crayons too!
Depending on the bag you use you can fit 3 heads per bag.
Tada! Easy and unique party favors.
