I have a big collection of Star Wars molds, and I have literally been staring at them almost every day for the last six months without once making something out of them. So last week, I decided that THIS WAS GOING TO BE THE WEEK. I was going to make something awesome with those Star Wars molds, NO. MATTER. WHAT.
And I totally did! We made ice (boring, but not when you’re filling your cup of ice water with Darth Vader’s ice head), soap, and crayons. I think the crayons would be *perfect* DIY party favors (the best kind, because the kids can make them as a party activity and then take them home for a favor).

This was incredibly easy to do, and it gave us a chance to do something with all of the broken crayons in our crayon box (and we have a ton of broken crayons!).
- These Star Wars molds (which are SO FUN and versatile)
- Crayons (use your broken ones or pick up some inexpensive ones here)
Peel the wrappers and break the crayons up into little pieces. Place the pieces in the molds. Put your molds on a cookie sheet and stick in the oven (250 degrees for about 10-15 minutes). You can let them cool on their own or put them in the freezer or fridge to cool faster (they’ll harden up right away if you do this!).
Push out of the mold (carefully, especially if you are using this particular X-Wing Starfighter mold, as the wings can break).
The kids were seriously SO excited about these. They were excited to peel the crayons (well…for ten minutes, maybe), they were excited to stuff them into the molds, and they were *super* excited to see them pop out as little X-Wing crayons.
