Old Crayons Made New Again

I saw this on Pinterest once and had to pin in on my "trying this" board.


All over our house we have cans of broken crayons. Must be the pack rat in me. they are still usable so there is no need to throw them out right!? 

Well my hubs disagrees, so I knew this would be right up his alley. Being that I can't seem to throw out old muffin tins pans either, I had a few of them laying around too ;-)

The boyz had a blast peeling off the paper, well the babies any way, my oldest was handing out rewards to the one that shoved the most crayons into one muffin cup. 

Of course there was a mess to clean up!

Once all the poor, warn out, and broken crayons were in their place, I tossed them into the oven at 350degrees until they were thoroughly melted.



The boyz LOVED watching them slowly melt away

I have to admit it was pretty cool

Once they were cooled I was able to pop them out onto the counter, however if you have trouble stick them in the freezer for a couple of mins first.


The Boys can't wait to do it again...........breaking crayons left and right, UGH!!! :-)
Needles to say this is one project that is not pinned to my "did this" board ;-)
