Rebirth of Old Crayons

My children have grown up and moved out, but I still have tons of art supplies lying around the house, which they used when they were little. Among them tons of crayons!

What does one do with a whole bag of old, unwanted, crayons, many of them broken, yet perfectly usable? You recycle them of course! A mom at Home grown Love

had the perfect solution to make toddler sized crayons! I just love the way they look!

Placing several of these puck size crayons in a little goodies bag, would also make great gifts to hand out to little ones that come to visit. I might even pass these out in goddies bags as an alternative to Halloween candy!

You’ll need:

  • Crayons broken into small sizes(make sure to peel off the wrappers!)
  • Muffin pan or candy molds (preferably one that you don’t mind getting a little crayon on! Also, some prefer mini muffin tins)
  • An oven


1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F

2. Break them into small pieces... & arrange them in each cup of the tin.

3. Bake until crayons are melted together

4. Turn off the stove and let crayons cool & congeal completely before moving the pan!

Watch as your little ones have tons of fun!

What have you made with melted crayons?
