Broken crayons? Don't throw them away, start the search and....make old crayons new again! They're a great size for little hands and they'll love the multi colour new look.
This project is SO, so easy to do and great fun for you and your kids. All you really need is a mini-muffin/cupcake tin pan (or other shaped tin pan).
Here’s how to do it….
- Step 1: Peel paper labels off crayons, break up crayons into small pieces and distribute into muffin tin (filling cup to the top). Then place in a 180 degree oven.
- Step 2: Melt for around 15 minutes.
- Step 3: Let the muffin tin cool for about 25 minutes. Then place tin in your refrigerator or freezer for about 5-10 minutes. If you place in the refrigerator/freezer before cooled — the muffins may crack from the extreme temp.
Told you it was pretty easy! Now get out the colouring books and butcher's paper and go wild!
