Old Crayons

Chop crayons into pea size pieces. Preheat the oven to 150′ while children fill the tin with crayon pieces.
Bake just until wax has melted, about 15-20 minutes.
Remove the shapes after they have cooled. If they stick to the pan, place the tray in the freezer for an hour, and the crayons will pop out.

This is a great way to use up old broken crayons.  The crayons are also easy for little guys to hold onto, and can be in such a variety of colors that they look like beautiful rainbows.  Mixing colors like  different reds and oranges together makes a perfect crayon for sunsets. It’s exciting to break through each new layer of crayon and find a different color waiting underneath.
This was a very easy craft to make, and kids can be very involved in the process.

Have a fresh and fun day!
