We rounded up all the broken crayons in the house and melted them down last night to make some jumbo rainbow crayons. This project is easy and fun to do with kids.
If you want to make some of your own, here’s what you do:
1) Line an old muffin tin with cupcake wrappers and fill each about three quarters of the way with unwrapped, broken crayons. Mix up the colors as desired, or group like colors together.
2) Melt the crayons in a 250-degree oven until the wax melts. It will take about 15 minutes. I could have let these go a little longer, but we were cutting it close to bedtime.
3) Let the wax sit undisturbed until completely cool. Remove from tin and peel off the paper wrappers.
