Looking for the perfect simple easter gift? What about easter bunny crayons! Here is how to make bunny crayons for easter!
We love making rainbow crayons in the oven any time of year, but they are really perfect for easter baskets or for easter party favors!

How to make bunny crayons for Easter
Bunny crayons are super easy to make! All you need is to melt crayons in silicone molds and let them cool so they take the shape of the mold!
Be sure they are completely melted and it is an easy project!
- Broken crayons
- Silicone bunny mold
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees
- Unwrap your crayons
- Break into pieces small enough to fit in the molds
- Fill molds until they are overflowing
- Place molds on a cookie sheet
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until fully melted
- Remove from oven and let cool completely - you can freeze them to speed this up
- Pop out of the molds and enjoy
Why use a silicone mold?
Silicone molds are inexpensive, easy to store and clean, and the biggest bonus is that you don’t need to use cooking spray – they just pop right out.
Simply push the mold inside out and the crayon will come out!
