Food Coloring Crayons

Put one of these crayons in the soap dish -- washing up for dinner has never been so colorful!

1 cup  Ivory Snow soap powder (this brand is the--most gentle for skin)
Food coloring (as many colors as you'd like)
2 tablespoons hot water
1 small  mixing bowl for each color crayon you--want to make
Ice tray or candy mold (for the crayon mold)
 
What to do:
 
Step One: In a large mixing bowl, stir the soap flakes and hot water until the mixture thickens.
 
Step Two: Spoon an even amount of the mixture into each of the small bowls.
 
Step Three: Add a few drops of the food coloring into each of the bowls.  Keep mixing in more color until your mixture is a thick paste.
 
Step Four: Spoon even amounts of the crayon mixture into the molds. Make sure there are no air bubbles in the paste.
 
Step Five: Set your crayon molds aside to dry. Be patient -- it can take up to a week to dry fully.
 
Step Six: After the molds are dry, remove your new crayons from the mold.  Set them aside somewhere they will not be disturbed. Let your crayons dry for another day or two.
 
Now it's time to color like crazy! You can find pictures to print out and color, or make your own.
