Chunky Recycled Crayons

Create your own fun crayons by recycling old broken worn down crayons. I saw this idea on pinterest; and it reminds me of the chunky block crayons I loved as a kid. You can have a lot of fun with this project by utilizing different shape pans and using different color patterns. This is also a great project to do with kids or really anyone of any age would enjoy this. I won't give a tutorial because here's a great link that leads to a blog from pinterest that does a perfect job providing a step by step tutorial;

I ended up finding the silicone mini brownie pan at Michael's Craft Store and paid $5 with a 50% off coupon. A co-worker gave me a sandwich bag of her daughter's old crayons. About 30 crayons made 24 recycled crayons. It took about 20-25 min. to melt the crayons. I'd like to keep making these and try different shaped pans.

They WORK!
