One final use of the Lego mold for this party (I might think of some others for our next Lego party, I have 2 boys) is melting broken crayons for the gift bags. I’ve read about how easy it was, but hadn’t tried it before.
It worked like a charm! 7 mins at 300 degrees and this is what we got! After letting them cool they un-molded great.
They are shorter than the other stuff I made because I couldn’t fully fill them, but they color and that’s the best part! Although it was much harder to clean the mold from the crayons than any of the candies were. I had to really scrub it off. Because I want the mold to stay food safe I’m not sure if I’ll use it for crayons again without a bit more research.

Sugg. I understand what you mean about wanting to keep it food safe….Seems that the mold is big enought that you could designate a certain number of them for colors only and the others for food/candy ect.
Q: Where do i get a mold?
Sure, you could do that, but if I was going to do it again I’d just make a smaller mold for crayons and then this one for food. And the mold can be found on this make your own lego mold post
Hello from Spain!
I am about to put the mold into the oven, just waiting for the little sister to put at least a bit of her pink crayons too… 300 degrees – that would be Fahrenheit, right? Sorry for that silly question.
