Love this blog! crockpot365

Was made aware of this blog from Ravelry and I love how creative she is being with her crock pot. So much so, that I was inspired to make
these.


Here are the crayons soaking as to make it easier to peel off the labels (not so much, some were IMPOSSIBLE, they got tossed) Oh, and don't use washable crayons, they make a mess!




Here are the crayons broken up and divided into the cups, I decided to go for the "multi color" look. My crock pot was only 5 quart, so I had to stack the muffin pan, it still worked.




Here they are, all melted and starting to cool down.







Here are the finished cupcake crayons! Solid color on top, multi on the bottom (mostly green-go figure)I'm hoping to use these at preschool, I think the shape will be easy for the kids to hold when we are doing rubbings. I'll let you know!

leslie, these came out so nicely! That is really good to know about the stacking---thanks for that tip.

In my former life, I taught preschool. The kids will love it! Did you see how I made playdough in the crock? That's a good one to do with little kids because it isn't as scary as stirring over the stovetop.

thanks again for the feedback, I'm ecstatic it worked for you!

:) yes, I did see the crockpot playdough, but I haven't tried it, we make ours on the stove (without help from children)
I'm going to make the turkey next week, thanks for the great ideas!
