Home Made Crayons!

We are a household that likes to up-cycle whenever we can. We love the idea of re-using things to create new things.  What we have plenty of around here is used up or broken crayons..... well we just have tonnes of crayons in general! They seem like a popular item to receive at restaurants, birthday loot bags, specials we have more than enough to reuse for a fun craft.

*Broken crayons with paper removed
*Silicone baking mould with fun small shapes

Peel the paper off all your crayon pieces and break them into smaller pieces so they are as small as you can get them.

Place as many small piece with a variety of colours in each mould shape, you want to make sure that when the crayons melt they fill the shape up so load them up higher than the edges. If you don't the crayons will be thin and likely to break when you try to remove them from the mould.

Put the mould with crayon pieces into the oven and bake for 20 minutes at 200F.

Remove the mould from the oven and let it cool. To speed this process up you can put them in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes.

When they are cool carefully remove them from the mould.

Have fun drawing with fun crayons in cool shapes!
