Crayon?

So i want to make little shaped crayons for my kids classes for halloween instead of sending candy, do anyone know of a good mold to use for crayons, i found somewhere to buy the colors i need in bulk so i plan on just doing orange, white, purple and black maybe pumpkin, cat, bat, skull, ghost, witch and boo maybe, i found a few chocolate candy mold but i didnt know if there were some small silicone ones that would work, they dont need to be big at all maybe just hold 2 tablespoons of crayon. these are pre-k kids any suggestions

  • Any kind of mold you can put in the oven should work. You can also make our own with old crayons, just break them up.

  • I dunno I always used muffin cups to make reeses cup looking crayons out of the old broken ones. Put broken crayons int he cupa and bake at 250 until melted through cool then peel of the paper.

  • I use wilton cup cake molds for crayons. there are also Tart molds that you can use. And now at Hobby lobby they have Silicon molds. But what you are doing is totally cool and the kids will Love them! Oh the other type i use are found at Michaels/hobby lobby for different type of Soap molds.

  • Oh, Dollar Tree had little silicone molds but idk if you can put them in oven. I think they were to make ice cubes.
