Upcycled Crayons

Upcycle your old crayons!  From this.....

To this.....

You will need: old, broken crayons, silicone muffin pan, cookie sheet, and a warm oven. 

We baked them at 230°F for 15 minutes and voilà! Brand new people crayons.  We waited for them to completely cool before popping the little people out.

Why not make crayons to spell your child's name, the students in your class, or give them as party favors!

NOTE - do not fill the crayons to the top of the muffin pan.  About three-quarters of the way seemed to work for us. We placed a cookie sheet under the muffin pan for good measure.  While this is a neat craft for kids, we did not make them with the children since the oven is hot and so is melted wax.
