Hello, I’m back today with an Easter activity that is a little bit different from the usual chocolates (even though I love chocolate) and Easter eggs.
To make these crunchy pencils you will need a silicone Easter chocolate mold, crayons, colored straw, a basket (or box, tray etc, something that looks Easter to put your pencils in) and a glue gun.
To avoid wasting the entire mold I cut it in half so that I could use the second piece to make chocolates. Indeed, once you have used your mold to melt your crayons, I don’t recommend using them in food.
Preheat oven to 180° C.
Cut pieces of crayons and place them in the mold. Avoid using brown color so that kids don’t mistake them for real chocolates. You can put several colors together to make a multi-colored pencil.
Place the crayons on a baking tray protected by parchment paper in case the hot wax splashes. Bake in the lower part of the oven.
Place the crayons on a baking tray protected by parchment paper in case the hot wax splashes. Bake in the bottom of the oven and stir with a stick to melt the pieces evenly.
When the wax has cooled, remove from the pan.
Glue together two egg casts to make like a real Easter egg. I first tried it with glue then switched to the glue gun, much more effective.
While the crayons are cooling you can prepare the basket by filling it with colored raffia.
Then place the crayons on the raffia. You can place the basket in the center of the table and give the children sheets to occupy them during the meal.
You can also make small gifts by putting a few pencils in a plastic bag with raffia. We closed it with chenille thread, but a pretty ribbon will also work well.
The miss had a lot of fun preparing the pencils and presenting them nicely. Of course she didn’t go near the oven and the pencils in liquid form.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY. If you make this DIY and share on social media tag me and add #DoItWithMrRabbit
I’m finishing up an activity book to keep the kids busy until dinner and I’ll be back soon!
