Melted Crayons!










This brings back so many memories! I loved making, and then coloring with these crayons as a kid because of all the fun colors you can get with just one crayon! Here's how you do it (it's really easy!)

-Collect crayon pieces, and break them into smaller pieces if you want.

-Arrange pieces in a muffin tin. You can sort by color or mix them up. You don't need to use Pam or grease the pan because of the wax in the crayons.

-Heat the oven to 225 degrees and place the crayons inside for roughly 8-10 minutes (keep you eye on them) They are ready to come out once they look soupy.

-Let them cool on the counter, or put them in the freezer for a few minutes.

-You're ready to create some art once the crayons are room temperature!


PS: A fun idea for valentines is to make heart shaped crayons like these:

  2. I just saw this post and wanted to tell you we had the same idea. My daughter made these for her valentine party at school yesterday.
    I posted it on my blog if you want to take a look
