recycled broken crayons


 

Beautiful color.

I love this idea. 

Place broken crayons in a mini-muffin tin.  A fun-shaped muffin tin/mold would be great to use as well, think hearts, flowers, etc.  Put muffin tin in preheated 300 degree oven.  Watch closely until crayons are melted into a nice, hot wax.  Remove muffin tin from oven. Cool.  Flip over and pop out these chunky new crayons. 

This is a great idea for recycling your kiddo's old, broken crayons.  You can also buy a $1 box of crayons and make fun color-themed kiddo party favors or to accompany a gift.  Plus, these large, chunky crayons are great for small hands. 

These are for my kiddo's upcoming 2nd birthday party favor boxes.  


On Monday July 12th, I will share recycled crayons along with four other simply DIY kiddo party favors and activities (including...mess-free finger painting, paper fans, pinwheels, and pocket coloring books) on Great Day St. Louis.  For my other appearances on Great Day, check out the left sidebar.

This is so cute! What a great idea.
And the crayons just pop right out of the tin? Are you actually able to use the tin again for baking, or is it too waxy?
Happy New Friend Friday!
