With little kids, you almost always have broken crayons laying around. Use this to recycle them, or just use unbroken crayons for a fun craft with your child!

Ingredients

1
silicone candy or cooking mold
crayons, any colors

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel crayons and break them into small pieces.
2
Fill the cavities of the silicone mold with crayon pieces. Place the mold on a foil-lined baking sheet.
3
Melt the crayons in a 180 degree oven - about 15 minutes for a small mold, longer for a larger one. (Mine actually took about 45 minutes)
4
Remove the mold from the oven, and let the crayons cool before popping them out. To speed up cooling time, place the mold in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Jenni, thanks for the tip! I have had a silicone cupcake mold for about 2 years and never used it, so I will be using it for the crayons. Target always has cool silicone molds for $1 and now that I have this recipe I will buy some more! Thank you again :)

You're welcome! Just a tip, though... The pan doesn't clean up very well, so you might want to designate a pan just for crayons.
