So you have a child who is ALL into Legos?

Maybe one who wants a Legos birthday party and you're seeing dotted pieces everywhere?

How about a fun activity for Summer?

This new 5 piece Silicone Lego Style Bricks and Minifigure Molds set from eX3 is your solution!

The molds are  BPA free and non-toxic, and because they are so flexible, they are easy to sue, even for kids! You can use them to make ice cubes,chocolate, candy, or even crayons! They are safe for use in the freezer, fridge, dishwasher, and even the oven or microwave ( up to 450 Fahrenheit, (230 Celsius).

The set contains:

- RED tray-  makes 7 Lego or Duplo styled bricks (assorted sizes)
- ORANGE tray- makes 10 Lego or Duplo styled bricks (assorted sizes)
-YELLOW tray-  makes 10 Lego or Duplo styled bricks (each measuring 2.5 x 5 x 1.5 cm)
- BLUE tray- makes 8 small Lego men (each measuring 4cm in height)
- GREEN tray- makes 1 big Lego man (9 cm in height) and 4 small Lego men (each measuring 4.5 cm in height)

I decided to test out the molds using some chocolate, as Miss Grace's class is taking their IOWA tests this week, and while they are having healthy snacks, I wanted to give them a reward for doing such a great job and powering through a long week of tests!

I melted the chocolate in the microwave, using the package directions, and then filled the molds, using a teaspoon.

After you fill them, be sure to shake them against the counter a couple of times to get rid of air bubbles! As you can see on the lego men, I added some sugar crystals to the top (aka bottom of the mold) to add some crunch and color.

Yes, they are overfilled, but I knew after popping them in the freezer that that extra would easily snap off when they came out of the mold. they set in the freezer about 2 hours, as I was busy and wanted them to really set up.

As you can see on the blocks, I put the crystals on the bottom (aka after I filled the molds), as I was worried about the dots not forming right. We had a couple of oopsies getting them out (this is where it might be better for an adult to pop the blocks out). But they look pretty cute and tempting none the less! And I have to say it was a LOT easier getting them out of silicon mold, than the traditional hard plastic ones!

We placed them in individual bags and Miss Grace took them to school yesterday. The class was thrilled with their later afternoon snack and Miss Grace got plenty of high fives for having a cool mom that could make Lego Chocolates! LOL

The molds are super EASY to clean. I just ran water in them and let them sit for about 15 minutes. Then I just rinsed them out and they were clean! Now if I was using crayons, I would have really scrubbed them with soap, or ran thru dishwasher,  but we're keeping the 3 molds I used for candy and chocolate, so they were fine, We'll probably use the red and orange ones for soap and crayons, so those I won''t use again for food- just my personal preference. 

Here's what soaps and crayons could look like:

The company offers a  100% money back guarantee on the molds- simply return them if you are not satisfied, no questions asked. That's pretty rare these days, and says how well these are constructed!

So if you're looking for the perfect addition to your Lego party, or for some great Summer fun (and to be the cool mom, LOL),  check out this set!
