Crazy Crayons


Here's a great way to recycle your old crayon stubs. Making your own crazy crayons is easy and great fun. The finished crayons can be used for drawing. Children will need help from an adult for this project as it involves an oven and hot wax.

Time: 1 hour
Age: Any Age with help from an adult
Level: Easy

Materials
Old crayon stubs
Silicon baking mold

Method
Take any paper off the crayon stubs and break up any larger pieces as small as possible

Don't forget to remove any paper


Fill your silicon moulds with the broken crayon stubs. You don't need to fill the molds all the way to the top but you should aim for a final size which is at least a few centimetres deep so that it doesn't snap when you take it out of the mold

Ready for the oven


Place the silicon mold onto a tray and put into a hot oven approx 200 degrees.
Remove once the wax has fully melted (5-15 minutes)

This is such a great idea, and a fantastic use of those shaped silicon moulds. I never end up using mine for baking, maybe I should make crayons instead. :)
