My kids have broken about a million crayons in their time on this earth. And with toddlers (as I always seem to have), those things are forever rolling across my floor. So what should you do when your crayons are taking over your life? Make them new and exciting!
1. Pre heat your oven to 250 degrees.
2. Take all the paper off of your old, broken crayons and put them in a plastic bag. Beat on them with a hammer or tenderizer until they’re in smaller pieces.
3. Using tin foil cups as a liner, fill a muffin tin with about 1 inch of crayons. OR, you can do what I did for a little more fun and use some silicon molds.
(Optional) For some extra sparkle, add some extra fine glitter to the crayon pieces.
4. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the wax is melted.
5. Let the tin or mold cool. Pop put the crayons and they’re ready to use.
Enjoy! And, yes, those are the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo in Carbonite, and R2-D2 crayons.
