Broken crayons? Don't throw them away, start the search and....make old crayons new again! They're a great size for little hands and they'll love the multi colour new look.crayon_art_activity_rainy_days

This project is SO, so easy to do and great fun for you and your kids.  All you really need is a mini-muffin/cupcake tin pan (or other shaped tin pan).

Here’s how to do it….

  • Step 1: Peel paper labels off crayons, break up crayons into small pieces and distribute into muffin tin (filling cup to the top). Then place in a 180 degree oven.
  • Step 2: Melt for around 15 minutes.
  • Step 3: Let the muffin tin cool for about 25 minutes. Then place tin in your refrigerator or freezer for about 5-10 minutes. If you place in the refrigerator/freezer before cooled — the muffins may crack from the extreme temp.

Told you it was pretty easy! Now get out the colouring books and butcher's paper and go wild!
