Colorful Baptism Favor Ideas

Send your guests home with creative crayon party favors. These favors make especially great gifts for children. For this project, all you’ll need are crayons and a mini muffin pan. Keep in mind, you wont be able to use the muffin pan again for baking edible goods.

Get started by preheating your oven to 250 degrees. Then, remove the paper coverings from the crayons. Break the crayons into small pieces. Place the crayon pieces inside of the muffin tin and have fun creating color combinations. After filling the muffin tin, place it in the oven until crayons melt. This should take about 15 minutes.

Remove the tray from the oven. Let it cool for several minutes and place the tray into the freezer. Keep it in the freezer until the crayons are hard. Then, flip the tray over on your counter. The crayon pucks should pop out easily.

You can add extra flair to the favors using ribbons and bows. Attach a cute thank you note to the favor to show your guest you appreciate their baptism participation and support. Little touches can go a long way to express your appreciation and sentiment.
