Melting Colors

Posted on

Want something to do with all if those old crayons you have laying around your house?

Pre-heat your oven to 250 degrees

Grab some muffin pans and spray them with vegetable oil or you can use cupcake liners. I used silicone pans because the crayons pop out easier with the flexibility of the pan.

Gather all of your old and broken crayons. Take off any wrapping or paper that is on the crayons.

Put the crayons inside of the muffin pan like so

I filled each compartment up about half way.

You can do all of one color in each or make your crayon multicolor by mixing them up.

Next, I put them in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. The Crayola website warns that the room should be well-ventilated!

Let the crayons cool for about 10-15 minutes. At this time they will harden.

Ta-Da!!

These crayons are easy to make, fun to use, and awesome to give as a gift!
