The "recipe" for recycled crayons is SO EASY I can't believe we didn't try it sooner.  Kids can make crayons in endless shapes and color combinations, too!  Here's how!

Recycled Crayons Recipe

Materials
Before getting started you will want to preset the oven to 150 degrees. 

Method
  • Begin by peeling the wrappers off of old, broken crayons.  
  • If you don't have any broken crayons to use you can start with new crayons.
