A really neat way to recycle those old crayons.
This craft has been around forever. I do not know who originally thought of this idea. This is how I do it.

  • How to make a crayons. New Crayons From Old - Step 1
    Step 1

    Tinfoil tart tins work great. Divide your colours up. Make sure there are different shades of the same colour mixed in. This will make the end product look great as those "lights" and "darks" show up in the final product. Pinch the cups as I have done here to allow colour to pour easily from the cup to the mold. Set on cookie tray lined with some wax paper. Preheat oven anywhere from 200-215 degrees. (all stoves vary) Place in oven. Keep watch! When the crayons have all liquified, take them out. Use ovenmits. You can add a little cooking spray to your candy molds and gently pour the liquid into the molds. Place in fridge.

    Using a bit of cooking spray will release the crayons from the molds VERY easily. Release when cooled.
    Enjoy!

I bought these at Michaels craft store. They are candy molds and they come in an abundance of subject matter, toy cars, roses, turtles, hearts....and are very inexpensive to boot!
