DIY Idea Minions Party Crayons

The Minions have their own movie coming out in theaters soon!

Our whole house is excited about seeing this movie. Yes, even the adults. I love both Despicable 1 and Despicable 2.

Even though you really can’t understand what the Minions are saying… it’s just funny!

If your kids are into The Minions, then let them have fun by making their own crayons. This is a super EASY DIY recipe for making your own crayons!

DIY Idea Minions Party Crayons

Supplies needed:
Yellow and orange crayons
Muffin or donut tin
Non stick cooking spray

The amount of crayons you need will depend on the number of crayons you are creating. For the donut shaped crayons you see here, we used about 2 standard sized crayons per donut.

Directions:
1. Begin by breaking each crayon in half. This will make peeling the paper off easier.
2. Remove the paper wrapping from the crayons. Make sure they are completely cleaned off and free from all wrapping and wrapping residue.
3. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Spray the inside of your donut or muffin pan with non stick cooking spray.
4. While the oven preheats, begin breaking your crayons up into smaller segments. You should be able to get about 4-5 segments per crayon stick.
5. Drop the segments into the donut or muffin tin. You want to create one layer with the crayon bits. For thicker crayons, add an additional layer.
6. Heat in the oven at 300 degrees for 10 minutes or until liquefied. Carefully remove and allow to cool.
7. Place the pan in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to help loosen them from the tin. Gently turn the tin over to release the crayons.
