Crayons are fun to make and are very useful after wards! Get the kids or some friends and make away!
Things you will need:
1 cup Ivory Snow soap powder (this brand is the most gentle for skin)
· Food coloring (as many colors as you'd like)
· 2 tablespoons hot water
· 1 small mixing bowl for each color crayon you want to make
· Ice tray or candy mold (for the crayon molds)
· Mixing spoon
In a large mixing bowl, stir the soap flakes and hot water until the mixture thickens.
Spoon an even amount of the mixture into each of the small bowls.
Add a few drops of the food coloring into each of the bowls. Keep mixing in more color until your mixture is a thick paste.
Spoon even amounts of the crayon mixture into the molds. Make sure there are no air bubbles in the paste.
Set your crayon molds aside to dry. Be patient -- it can take up to a week to dry fully.
After the molds are dry, remove your new crayons from the mold. Set them aside somewhere they will not be disturbed. Let your crayons dry for another day or two.
