How to Make Recycled Crayons
I've been on a crayon making kick!! It's so fun! AND EASY!!
Step #1: Soak the old crayons in water. You'll be amazed how some of the wrappers just open right up within minutes. Some crayon labels are more stubborn than others and need to be scraped off.
Step #2: Place the crayons in a large plastic ziplock bag and break the crayons apart by hitting the bag with a hammer
Step #3: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees
Step #4: Begin placing the crayon bits into an old muffin tin (you won't be able to use it for food anymore)
Step #5: Place in the oven for about 30 minutes until all the wax melts
tep #6: Allow the wax to harden and cool (a few hours). Turn the pan over and out they will fall right out!!
