CRAYONS
Here's How: -

   1. Turn oven on to 300 degrees.
   2. Spray the Sillycone Trays very lightly with non-stick cooking spray (this is not 100% necessary, but it does make the crayons a bit easier to remove).
   3. Break old crayons into tiny pieces, an inch or less long.
   4. Fill the Sillycone Trays with the crayon pieces. Fill each cup with like colors or experiment with mixing colors.
   5. Put the Sillycone Trays on a cookie sheet and into a 300 degree oven they go! Leave in there until all the crayon pieces are melted.
   6. Remove from oven and let cool.
   7. Once cooled you can pop out your crayons and try them!

Tips:

   1. This craft should never be tried without adult supervision!
   2. Oven time will vary depending on how many crayons you use.

What You Need:

    * Sillycone Molds
    * Crayons bits
    * Non-stick Cooking Spray


SIDEWALK CHALK
Here's How:

   1. Use your Sillycone molds your sidewalk chalk.
   2. Mix together 1 cup of Plaster of Paris with 1 cup of water.
   3. Add color to your mixture using powdered tempera paint.
   4. Blend well and let stand for a few minutes.
   5. Pour your mixture into the Sillycone Molds.
   6. Set aside and let dry completely.
   7. Once dry you can remove your chalk from the mold.
   8. Set it aside to dry for approximately 24 hours more.
   9. Take your chalk outside and create fun masterpieces!

Tips:

   1. Powdered tempera paint is available at most large craft stores.
   2. Experiment with making swirled colors by adding the paint and stirring very little.
   3. Drying time can take from several hours to a few days depending on the size of the mold you chose.

What You Need:

    * Sillycone Molds
    * Plaster of Paris
    * Water
    * Medium Sized Bowl
    * Powdered Tempera Paint


SOAP
Here’s How:

Place the pieces of glycerin in the Sillycone mold and place it in the microwave. Microwave at high for 30 second intervals until melted. Fill the mold almost 3/4 of the way full with the glycerin and let it set. Pop out when firm. Spell out Clean or Hand Soap with the letters! It’s a great way to have your son/daughter clean up before dinner time!
What You Need:

    * Sillycone Molds
    * Clear Glycerin (cut into small pieces)
    * Fragrance (optional)
    * Coloring (optional)
 


CANDLES
Here’s How:

Weigh out and melt your wax to about 180 degrees. Add your fragrance oil and stir well. If you are making a one-color/one-layer candle, you would also add your colorant here. But we're making a two-toned candle, and the top tone is white, so no color here.

Note: If your two tones were both colors, you would add your first "top" color here.

Pour the hot wax into the mold cavities. Let the mold sit until the bottom of the cavities starts to harden. (You can speed this up by placing the mold into a water bath (in the sink) but you have to be careful, because they're so flexible, these molds can be hard to move, and you risk getting water into your wax.)

When enough of the first color of wax has hardened, carefully pour the still liquid wax back into the pour pot. Again, because of the mold's flexibility, you may need to tilt the mold and let the wax drain into a baking pan, and then use the baking pan to pour back into the pour pot.

Melt the rest of the wax, add your color (or second color.) Let the wax cool down to about 160 degrees - you don't want to melt too much of the first layer. Gently pour the second layer into the mold cavities. Make sure that the wicks are still centered and let the candles cool. Depending on the type of wax you're using, you will get some shrinkage on the top.

Once they have cooled completely, you can unmold them.

Turn the mold over and gently push on the cavity with your thumb while pulling the silicone back. The candle should pop right out.

Be gentle! Especially with intricate designs, you can break pieces off by unmolding too quickly.
What You Need:

    * Sillycone molds
    * A blend of wax appropriate for pillars or votives
    * Wick appropriate for the size candle that will be molded –
    * Fragrance and color, as desired
