Craft: How to Make New Crayons Out of Old

If you are like a lot of other kids, you probably have lots of crayons. What can you do with the small broken crayons besides throw them out? Melt them of course, and make one or several multi-coloured crayons! Here's how to make this fun craft:

Broken Crayons

What you need:

A grownup helper
Small crayons with paper removed
Muffin baking tray
Muffin cups (paper type)

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 250°F (120°C).
 
2. Place a muffin cup in each cup of the muffin tray.
 
3. Put some crayons in each cup. Mix the colours to make multi-coloured crayons. Make sure you have removed the paper wrapper from the crayons. Do not overfill cups.
 
4. Ask your adult helper to place the baking tray in the oven. For extra fun, turn on the oven light, so you can watch the crayons melt
 
5. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until all the crayons are melted.
 
6. Remove baking tray from oven and allow to cool.
 
7. Remove from tray and peel off paper muffin cups. Now you have new, multi-coloured crayons. These make cool little gifts for younger siblings and friends.
