Who has crayons that look like this?
These broken crayons no longer have to be thrown out…
That’s right you can make your own crayons at home using your broken crayons.
First step is to take the paper off the crayons and make sure they are all broken up.
Put them into a muffin tin ( I suggest these throw aways because then you won’t have to ruin one of your good ones)
you could use the silicone trays too and make fun shape crayons : )
Put into a 250 degree F oven for about 15 minutes or until the crayons have completely melted
Take out of oven and put the tray in the refrigerator for 15 minutes so it cools off and when they are cold it will be easier to pop your new crayons out ( shown above ).
You have now saved those broken crayons and your little one will have a blast with this multi colored crayons!
Mia loves them and they are easier for the younger kids to grab : )
