Got Crayons?

Recycle them! We bought the kids new crayons to start off the school year with, but we were left with lots and lots of old broken ones that I just didn't have the heart to throw out. So we recycled them, into new chunky crayons. Now we have new crayons and new chunky crayons! Less trash in the landfills, more fun for us! we took our old crayons, peeled them and chopped them up, then we put them in mini muffin tins and put them in the oven at 250 degrees until the were all melty
You can use all one color and make solids or mix the colors up to make rainbow crayons.

After the wax is all melty put the muffin tins in the freezer for a while until they are all cool and solid again. Then just pop them out and you have funky chunky crayons!
