Recycle Crayons For A Rainbow Of Color And Fun

Ever wonder what you should do with the carnage of broken crayons that end up in every corner of the house? Here is a great idea that is practical, easy and fun for the kids.


  1. Gather all your broken crayons and take the wrappers off
  2. Cut them into small pieces.
  3. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
  4. Fill the muffin tin or a candy mold with an inch-thick layer of crayon pieces.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the wax is melted.
  6. Allow the tin to cool; then pop out the crayons, and they're ready for use.


  • If you don't have a muffin tin to devote to crayon making, you can line your regular muffin tin with foil cups.
  • Cover your workspace with Newspaper- the melted wax can be quite messy and we are working with kids after all (wink wink)
  • Recycled crayons make a great no-cost gift or party favor! The kids love them.
  • Try using candy molds or any other fun shaped baking tin for really cool shaped crayons!
