Every household with kids probably has a few broken crayons lying around. Rather than toss them, why not recycle them into new crayons for even more kids crafts? Here is what you need to do:
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
- Slice up your old crayons into small pieces (I neglected to do this).
- Put the sliced up crayons into an old muffin tin. I tried silicone and it wrecked the pan.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes.
- Put the pan in the freezer for an hour if you’re having trouble releasing the crayons from the pan. They’ll pop right out.
We usually do a combination of mixed-colored crayons and single-color crayons. My 5-year-old is particular about her coloring and gets frustrated by the mixed-colored crayons after a while. Enjoy!
