Every time we go on a road trip I always pack my son’s backpack with a book, an electronic device, a few snacks/drinks, and a notebook with colored pencils or crayons. I always love when I see him grab his crayons or colored pencils instead of his electronics. Creativity is something that I love and love when I see the kids enjoy it as much as me.

Now having crayons in the car or in my purse scares me a little, thinking they could get on something that I don’t want them on so that’s why I decided to make them in chapstick form with lids. That way when they put them away I know that they will be good. They are super easy to make too, which makes me happy.

How to make our DIY Chapstick Crayons for Kids:

  1. Carefully score two of each color crayon on a cutting board with a cheese knife (you can control it more) and peel the crayon wrapper off.
  2. Break your two crayons in several pieces and place them into your clean soup can.
  3. Place your soup can in a small sauce pan of boiling water, stir your crayons with a craft stick as they melt.
  4. When the crayons are fully melted, carefully remove your can from the water, and carefully pour the melted crayon into a empty chapstick tube. Our DIY Chapstick Crayons for Kids are perfect for trips and taking to restaurants.
  5. Let your Chapstick Crayons set for about 30 minutes before using (place in the refrigerator for a faster cool time).
  6. Repeat steps 1-6 with each color crayon that you’d like.
