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.
