πŸ–πŸ– Recycled Crayons πŸ–πŸ–

If you have some broken crayons lying around in your house, now theres a way to use it.. You can make your own crayons from the broken pieces. My LOs love to color and also tend to break alot of crayons… They like breaking the crayons as much as coloring πŸ˜‚.. I usually toss out the broken ones, but not after this. You can use these as party favours or fill up a glass jar… Or simply color using them πŸ˜€

What you need

  • Broken crayons ( i broke some crayons for this project 😜😜 )
  • Silicone moulds ( i used aluminium foil cupcake liners ) – will be using our cute heart shape moulds next time

How to

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F
  • Peel the paper off the crayons and cut them into small pea size pieces. 
  • Fill the moulds with the crayon pieces. Make sure to mix different colors to each mould. 
  • Bake them for about 8 mins or until the crayons have melted.
  • Remove from oven and leave it on the counter for about 10 mins.
  • Now cool them in the fridge for 10 mins.
  • Un Mould and Enjoy! πŸ˜€

Hi!! Im Lavanya, stay at home mom of 3 & 2 yr old girls.. My LOs are very active and they need various activities to keep them busy and interested. A monotonous play bores them easily.. Hence, I've started to explore & create activities to keep them occupied - fun & some learning.. This blog is my maiden attempt where you can find simple crafts and learning activities for kids. If you like my page share it with your friends. Also tell me what you think in the comments. πŸ˜€ Thanks for stopping by!!
