How To Recycle Old Crayons Into New!

Don't know what to do with your broken crayons? Turn them into news ones with fun shapes and colors.

What You’ll Need:

  • Crayons 
  • Silicon molds 
  • X-acto knife 
  • Baking sheet

How To Make

Step one: Set the oven to 200 degrees

Step two: Peel off the crayon wrappers – you may need an X-acto blade to cut a line down the paper of the crayon for easy ripping

Step three: Snap crayons into small pieces

Step four: Lay crayon pieces into the molds – Don’t worry if the crayons don’t lay flat they will smooth once they melt!

Step five: Place molds on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes

Step six: Remove molds from the oven and transfer them to the freezer. Crayons will be cool and ready to use in 30 minutes or less

And because these crayons are the perfect Earth Day activity, put your new crayons to use on this Earth Day coloring sheet!
