Make New Crayons From Old
If you have a lot of broken crayons laying around in a bin somewhere like I do, you can take those small crayon pieces and give new life to them by transforming them into new ones. You can use all kind of silicone shaped baking pans to mold them into a variety of fun shapes. Some of the prettiest remolded crayons are formed from lots of different color crayons that have all different shades of one color. Try making some rainbow crayons, some multi-hue crayons and single color crayons. These are great for home use and even as classroom gifts. This project should be completed under the supervision of an adult because it involves the use of the oven.
How to Do It
I remember doing this with my mom as a kid. Crayola has a machine that does it for about $25 which seems crazy to me when I can do it for the price of muffin papers in my own oven.
Fantastic!!! I'll try to do it today
What a great idea - I love everything that has to do with recycling! I will definitely do this with my old crayons.
