Crayon Makeover

Our home has an ever growing bucket of crayons. The kids get more crayons every time we go to a restaurant and it seems that every gift they get comes with a coloring book and a boxes of crayons. We keep all our crayons in a bucket, so at clean up time, all of the crayons, including the broken ones. I am not one to waist anything, so I don't really like trowing away the broken crayons. My solution- a makeover.


We sorted the crayons and pull out all of the broken ones. Preheat the oven at 275 degrees.
Then peeled the crayons, broke them down in smalled pieces and placed them on the silicone molds. In the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, an out of the oven to cool down. Lastly, pull them out of the molds and enjoy the new, perfect for little hands, crayon.
The kids thought it was the greatest thing to color with the crayons they made themselves.
Have you tried this with you kids?
