DIY Crayon Place Cards!



When I host Thanksgiving, I make an easy setting for the kid's table-  I throw a bunch of crayons and markers in a vase and tell the kids to go crazy on the kraft paper "tablecloth"- they love it!

This year, I have a new spin and it is each kid's name in crayon!  After making bunny crayons for Kalia's easter basket last year, I wanted to make crayons in every shape and size.  They are cute and colorful and Kalia loves them!

How to Make Crayon Name Place Cards!

Materials:
Silicone Alphabet Mold
Crayons

Directions:
1) Unwrap the crayons- it is easiest to stick them in a bowl of water and let them soak for awhile.  The wrappers come off much easier!

2) Break crayons into pieces and fill mold.



3) Bake at 250 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let crayons cool before popping out.



Tell your kids to unleash their mini artists and draw like crazy on the tablecloth.    I also included a large bowl of letter crayons in the middle so they can use as many colors as they want.  Colette is a bit young for the crayons (10 months old) but Kalia insisted she have a name set (and also our two dogs- Zoey & Taj ;)




UPDATE:  I found a new crayon mold! I updated the link in the material list and it is mirror image. Whew hoo, no awkward rough sides! The R and G above you can see how the side is not smooth.





While I love the crayons to use at Thanksgiving,  the crayon place cards would be perfect for any party- and a great favor for the kiddos to go home with!  Anyone would love to go home with their own name in crayons!
