Using up broken crayons by melting them into new shapes is nothing new. But I`m going to share these anyways, cause they are just really cute!
My kids are colouring fanatics, especially my daughter who is 2. And she breaks a LOT of crayons!
I have a cute little bucket that I keep in the kitchen for us to save the broken crayons & when it`s full, we make some new ones!
We just made up a few batches....
My son got to help me peel the paper off the crayon pieces and we used a muffin tin to sort them by colour. I cut them up & then we stuck them in the oven to melt.
My son has new fish-shaped crayons now...
And my daughter has these little flower-shaped crayons...
My favourite part is that I put some away in little baggies that I stashed away for when we are in the vehicle during our trips this summer. I like having things like that to bring out when needed!
I also want to make up some more to put into my bag for church on Sundays. Thankfully I have a collection of ice cube trays to choose from.
