DIY Lego Block Crayons Craft
Block crayons have been a staple in my daycare for years.
They are great for little kids who can’t really grasp finer stick crayons and they hold up to even the most enthusiastic drawing sessions.
I’ve purchased an (expensive) store-bought set once and honestly, didn’t feel like they were any better than my homemade block crayons. As long as you are using good-quality, highly-pigmented crayons that aren’t too waxy, the finished result will be perfect. (I tried one batch of block crayons using an off-brand crayon and it resulted in a thick layer of white wax at the top of the crayon, which isn’t a huge deal but that portion of the crayon won’t be able to be used for coloring.)
For this set, I used brand new crayons but normally I just save up all of the broken crayons in a little container and when it gets full, I whip up some more block crayons.
I loved the texture that these Lego Brick Crayons had compared to our normal block crayons and a couple of my daycare kids who are really into Legos and building blocks were super excited to get to draw with these.
They would also make a super cute goody bag gift for a Lego-themed birthday party.
We just store these as you would any crayon, there’s no need to store them any special way. For us, they’re in a basket in the craft room.
You can also create a marbled effect to these Lego block crayons by mixing different hues of the same color family together or mixing up different cool colors together. They should mix nicely on their own once melted, but you can also use a toothpick to carefully swirl the melted wax together, if desired.
