Upcycled Crayons Into....crayons!

If you have kids, grandkids, teach or just have a creative streak, you have crayons. After awhile you have broken crayons and scraps of crayons scattered around. Now you can use those instead of tossing them!
Gather up the scraps and broken crayons and remove the wrapper. Using your hands or a knife, break the pieces into even smaller pieces - about the size of a pea or a rough chop.
Decide what crayons you want to have - all one color, 2 or more color combos, etc. Place them in your muffin tin.
Bake at 150 degrees for about 20 minutes. Keep an eye on these and when the crayons are all melted, they are ready! Remove and let cool.
Done! Adding different colors together gives a fun tie dye look and makes interesting drawings! Now you can have fun with your crayons all over again!

    I've been wondering how to do this! I am an art teacher and have a ton of old crayons. I have a small box of similar crayons to the ones you made that are mixed colors. The kids love those so I thought I'd make them little gifts. Obviously I'll need to make alot. Lol. Can you reuse the pans to make more? Do they come out easily? I'm assuming you wait till they're completely coll before removal. Thanks for the great idea! Have a beautiful day 💜💚🖤
