Use old crayons to create something Spectacular!
I know there are lots of versions of this activity, but here is mine. I did this with a group of children aged 2 -5, so its a good child based activity.

Place your broken crayons in the silicone moulds. You can use a baking tray, but you will need to grease. I found the silicone ones just peel away with less chance of breaking the finished crayon. I colour coded mine, blues / greens, orange / yellow ect You can use whatever colours you like! YAY!
Place your baking stuff on a tray and in the oven for about 10 mins. They may need more if some larger bits haven't melted, but really, it doesn't matter.
Keep an eye on it.
When you take them out, they should look like this!
Leave them to cool - place in fridge or freezer for quicken setting time, especially when working with children.
