Heart Crayons

We are talking about solid, liquid, and gas this month in class, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make heart crayons and demonstrate how a solid can turn to liquid an back to a solid.  I must say, the girls were especially excited to color with these heart crayons and asked me to tell their parents how to make them at home.  So this blog post is for all of my wonderful parents.  🙂

I chopped up crayons and placed them in a heart shaped, silicone muffin pan.  I pre-heated the oven to 270 degrees and put the muffin pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes.  Once they come out, they are a liquid, but if you let them cool for about 2 hours they become a solid again and you can peel them out and color with them!

Here are some photos…

    L.O.V.E. this! I have a Crayola crayon maker that I was going to use in the classroom when we get into states of matter..but I haven't used it yet so I don't even know how well it works. I've been saving our little broken crayon bits all year!

    I think this is also great to do as gifts for the students for any holiday!

    I made these crayons this weekend for my daughter's rainbow birthday party! What a great classroom lesson it would be, as well 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
