Crazy Crayons

Heat makes a crayon a little loopy: it may melt into a swirl or pool into a whirl. So we chopped up crayons and baked them in shaped mini cake tins. Making large blocks for toddlers to hold. This is a craft for you and your kids to do together.

By mixing colors together, you can draw a sky using blue and white, and for a mix of reds and oranges you can draw a sunset.Sounds fun to me !!


Kitchen knife/old crayons/Mini cake tins


1. Parents can use the knife to chop crayons into pea size pieces, taking care to keep colors separate so kids can combine them as they like.

2. Preheat oven to 150 degrees while children fill the tins with crayon pieces, arranging them in interesting designs.

3.Bake just until the waxes have melted. 15 to 20 minutes

4. Remove the shapes after they have cooled. If they stick,place tray in the freezer for an hour,and the crayons will pop out.
