My 3 year old son is obsessed with peeling things, labels in particular! He can sit still for minutes peeling labels off bottles, toys, boxes & CRAYONS! We literally buy crayons in bulk because he's so into it. I always have crayons on hand when he needs some quiet time. He'll sit quietly, concentrating on unwrapping all his crayons. It's a little insane the amount of unwrapped crayons I have accumulating in the art corner. I started to compile a list of things to do with all these crayons. You'll be surprise on all the fun things you can do! I posted on my Pinterest a little artwork I did using melted crayons. Lately, I've been getting a little more creative & decided to make my own lipstick — using crayons! Crazy right?! It's so easy & fun to make, not to mention non-toxic & super hydrating on the lips.
You will need --
Unwrapped crayons - I recommend Crayola as they are highly pigmented & non-toxic (your favorite colors)
Organic coconut oil - 1/2 teaspoon per crayon
Silver spoon (tablespoon or larger)
Spatula/Toothpick - mixing tool
1) Unwrap crayon & break into small pieces
2) scoop 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil & a few crayon pieces onto a large silver spoon. If you're using a smaller spoon start off with 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil.
3) light candle & place spoon above flame - wait a few seconds for product to completely melt
4) mix product with a spatula or toothpick to evenly disperse the ingredients
5) pour liquid into a container
6) allow liquid to solidify by placing container in the refrigerator for about 10 mins
7) done! Pair it with your favorite lip liner & apply with a clean finger or a lip brush
Check out some of the lip colors I made. Top left is Red Violet (the color that is in the pot *see photo above) The middle is a mixture of Red Orange & a bunch of lighter colors. Top right is Red Orange. Bottom left is Blue. Obviously not an everyday color but super fun! I wanted it to be really dark (it's pretty sheer) so I packed it on & it started to separate a bit. I'd probably pair it up w/ a dark blue or black liner for intensity. Bottom right is a mixture of the Blue & Red Voilet.
• Add a little black to any color to create a deeper shade & white to lighten
• Use your finger when applying to warm up the lipstick so it goes on smoothly
• This is NOT a long lasting lipstick. Wear a lip liner to prevent bleeding.
Crayola lipsticks are super fun to make. Next time you have unwrapped crayons laying around & need a new lipstick try this fun recipe!
