Coloring the Fall

Multicolored leaf crayons make charming gifts when attached to homemade cards with glue dots. The crayons also look inviting sitting in a bowl, waiting to color an autumnal scene.

Materials

  • crayons in fall colors (red, orange, yellow, and green)
  • leaf-shaped candy or cooking mold (silicone is best)
  • foil-covered baking sheet

Instructions

  1. Collect crayons in fall colors (red, orange, yellow, and green). Peel and break the crayons into small pieces.
  2. Fill the leaf-shaped cavities of a candy or cooking mold (silicone is best) with the crayon pieces.
  3. Place the mold on a foil-covered baking sheet, and melt the crayons in a 180˚ oven for about 15 minutes. Remove the mold from the oven, and let the crayons cool before popping them out.*

Tips:

To speed up the cooling time, place the mold in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
