Our DIY Chapstick Crayons for Kids are perfect for trips and taking to restaurants.
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:
- Empty chapstick tubes
- 2 24 ct. boxes Crayola crayons
- Craft sticks
- Empty and clean soup cans
- Sauce pan
- Hot pad
- 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.
- Break your two crayons in several pieces and place them into your clean soup can.
- Place your soup can in a small sauce pan of boiling water, stir your crayons with a craft stick as they melt.
- When the crayons are fully melted, carefully remove your can from the water, and carefully pour the melted crayon into a empty chapstick tube.
- Let your Chapstick Crayons set for about 30 minutes before using (place in the refrigerator for a faster cool time).
- Repeat steps 1-6 with each color crayon that you’d like.
