Car Birthday - Crayon Favors

Back to the Car Birthday party series of posts...

The favors, which the party goers were told to "Take one for the road" were car crayons! These were a pinterest find inspired by Homemade By Jill.

I followed Jill's instructions to a T, and completed the favors a week ahead of time (go me!!).

I found that running a razor along the length of the crayon made the paper come off quite easily.

I then sorted the crayons by color.

Like Jill, I used a tin can setting in a pot of boiling water to melt my crayons while stirring with a wooden dowel.

I then used my pot holders and tongs to pour the wax from the super-duper hot tin can into the plastic car molds.

Once all the crayons were completed, I bagged and tagged them.

The favor bags say, "Thanks for Zooming By my 2nd birthday party! Love Jillie". Then on the back, per my moms suggestion, I wrote "Please enjoy some car crayons". According to mom, people would have confusion over what these were, I of course laughed it off, however... we did have one child eat part of the crayon (she spit it out though).

All my girlfriends were super impressed with the fact that I made the favors; so easy!!
