Party Favors: Dinosaur Crayons

I was so excited to find the cutest silicone dinosaur mold at!
It's made from 100% food grade silicone, microwavable, and heat resistant up to 446°F.

It's actually for making chocolates, but I think it's perfect for making dinosaur crayons!

It arrived last week, and I finally got the chance to try it out tonight.

I followed the same formula I did in my DIY Crayon tutorial.

I broke up the crayons and filled the tray.
This tray smaller than the number 4 tray I used in my tutorial, so it only took about 1 crayon, cut into little pieces, to fill up each cavity.

Then I stuck the tray in the oven at 200°.
I took the tray out after the crayons were all melted - it took 25 minutes.

I put the tray into the freezer for 40 minutes - it takes about 1 hour or more for the crayons to harden if you leave the tray on the counter.
Next I carefully turned the tray inside-out and popped the crayons out.

Very cute and lots of details.
I think they will be a big hit at Serenity's birthday party!

Have fun!
