Each year I end up with hundreds, if not thousands, of old crayons. This is a great for old crayons you may have around the house. Crayola crayons work best for this project because they contain the most pigment. I have found that when using less expensive crayons a layer of colorless wax can form.
Step 1: Peel the paper of each crayon. This is a great activity for small children.
Step 2: Break crayons into small pieces.
Step 3: Arrange crayons in a silicone tray. I purchased this tray from Amazon as a set of 3 for $6.99.
Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Remove the tray when crayons are a liquid. WARNING: Leaving crayons in the oven too long with cause all the colors to mix to one solid color.
Step 5: Remove from oven and let stand until cool. Pop crayon out of mold. If you are as impatient as I am, place hot mold in freezer to decrease waiting time!
Step 6: Color! Try creating multi-color line designs!
