"Let's melt all our broken crayons!"
So we ditched the rest of our school work to have a little fun.
Basically we used all the broken ones that would have ended up in the trash anyway. We peeled all the paper off and placed them in a muffin tin.
Place the muffin tin in your pre-heated 275 degree oven. The crayons should be melted in about 10-13 minutes. Carefully place the hot muffin tin on a heat resistant surface and let cool for about 25 minutes. Then place tin in your freezer for about 5-10 minutes.
** If you place in the refrigerator/freezer before cooled- the muffins may crack from the extreme temp. change.
Invert the muffin tin the chilled muffin sized crayons should fall right out.
They thought this was SO cool! We'll wrap them in plastic wrap and share with friends. I'll be cheesy and make a note that says..."You make my world more colorful".
Have FUN melting crayons with your kids.
