Recycling crayons
By Cassie (Cassado)

Crayons are popular with people of all ages. Children, teens, and adults use them for coloring books, canvases, and projects of all kinds. The possibilities and color combinations are endless. Crayons can be fragile and easily broken if you grip them too hard when you’re lost in the creative process. Broken crayons are often unused and put in the trashcan or discarded in a junk drawer. However, crayons can be reused to add even more color or inspiration to your creative mind.


Old, broken, or unused crayons

You can use an old muffin or mini cake pan if you don't want to use the pan for cooking afterwards.

Step one:
Peel all the paper from the crayons and begin breaking them into smaller pieces.

Step two: Sort the crayons according to how you want them to look later on. Sort them into groups of similar shades or put them into completely random groups.

Step three: Put the crayons into the muffin or mini cake pan. Set your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit or about 150 degrees Celsius. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crayon wax has melted.

Step four: Remove the pan from the oven and set the crayons out to cool. For best results, put the pan in the freezer for an hour before removing the crayons.

Making homemade crayons is a fun craft to do by yourself, or when babysitting your siblings or nieces and nephews. Homemade crayons make good stocking fillers or party favors. If you’re cleaning out a junk drawer and stumble across some broken crayons, think twice before throwing them away!
