BLUE 42...BLUE 42...HUT...HUT

so...for some reason...at back to school time...i decided to stock up on crayons....no particular reason why...just because...well...when piling 'em into my cart...i kept thinking..."wow...a quarter a pack"...somehow that turned into quarterback...and then i got to thinking about a football mold i have...yeah...that's how my brain works...lol...

anywho...found this how to on martha about making your own crayons...now...i did a couple things different...since i'm impatient...i cranked the oven up to 350...and it only took about 10 minutes...also...i used a silicone mold...popped right out!...finally...my ocd would not allow me to mix colors...so i kept 'em all the same...

 
how perfect would these be for party favors?...or way a keep the little ones occupied during the super bowl?...what about year end gifties for youth football?...whatever you make 'em for...they'll get the crowd cheering!...

 

****check out my linky party directory on the sidebar to see where i'm linking to this week!...

Love them, we just did halloween crayons last month.. my kids LOVED to help me make them, and using the fun big shapes! Now Im on the look out for more fun silicone molds to make more. And I too kinda stocked up on crayons.. 25 cents is such a great deal! Who can resist new fresh crayons!! :)

Too cute! I have some silicone pans that I picked up at Target in the dollar section a few years ago that I have never used for anything. They are snowflakes and snowmen, I believe, but they have WAY too much detail. I could never think of anything to bake in them. I'm a little OCD, too, so I won't be mixing my colors... lol.

I have made crayons before with the old broken pieces from my kids' multiple shoeboxes full of crayons...I have done the silicone in a star shape, but I really love the footballs
