Repurposed crayons

I get tired of the tiny broken crayons in he crayon box. If you feel the same way then you should totally repurpose those tiny broken pieces into multi colored crayons.


Repurposing crayons is easy and fun for all ages. Simply put broken crayon pieces into an old cupcake tin or container of your choosing. We sort the colors so that like colors are melted together. 

Next you place the tin in an oven preheated to 300'-350' for fifteen minutes or until they are melted. I don't melt them completely, just to the point were they are level. This way the remaining unmelted crayon pieces make a more vibrate color variation than if it blended completely. 

When melted to your liking remove from oven and cool until solidified. Once the new crayons are hard and cool turn the tin upside down and pop them out. 

It's that easy!!! Now you are ready to use your new repurposed crayons.
