Take a box of 72 crayons, which likely costs less than $3.00 to purchase, and make it into 36 Lego shaped crayons that you can use to fill your goody bags for your Lego themed party!
I’ve shared before how to make your own crayons using your favorite mold and broken crayon pieces. It is a great way to recycle, but they also make excellent gifts. It is something your children can help you do and it is so much fun to see what amazing color combinations and masterpieces you can come up with.
Each individual Lego mold holds two whole crayons when broken into pieces. I purchased my Lego molds on ebay, and the seller shipped them quickly (free shipping, too!) and offered a buy it now option.
Want to make your own Lego mold? You can! Topsy Turvey has a step by step tutorial and you can use these molds to make candy, soap, crayons, you name it!
Lego Crayon Creations
From left to right these are the masterpieces we made. Purple Mountain Majesty/Periwinkle, Melon/Apricot, Dandelion/Yellow, and Sky Blue/Sea Green. The Sky Blue and Sea Green combo reminded me of a globe. Loved it!
These earth-toned crayons turned out great. The older kids at the party really like them. (from left to right) Plum/Pacific Blue, Asparagus/Olive Green, Cadet Blue/Golden Rod, and Tumbleweed/Brown.
Even though some may think Lego’s are more boyish, you can totally make them in girly colors! I really loved these! Timberwolf/Carnation Pink, Green Yellow/Yellow Green (who knew), Wisteria/Mauvelous and my favorite of them all is Robin Egg Blue/Tickle Me Pink.
These were fun, too! Crayola names have come so far and it makes creating even more fun! Mac & Cheese/Granny Smith Apple, Burnt Orange/Scarlett, and Black/Orange (perfect for Halloween!).
Lego Crayon Party Favors
To package these Lego crayons up, just place them in a small size cellophane treat bag that you can buy in mass quantity at your local craft store. Use 4×6 pieces of card stock and print them up with a fun saying. I just Google Lego sayings and came up with:
Imagine in color….
Then, fold the card stock in half, cut to adjust if needed, and staple to your crayon filled cellophane bags.
You can also download a Lego font here, if you would like.
Partner the crayons with a fun, free, printable Lego sheet, and you have an inexpensive party favor that matches your theme perfectly!
