I used to teach kindergarten (before Trouble). At the end of the school year I was always left with a huge bucket of old, probably half eaten, crayons. I made those disgusting crayons into 'new' crayons for the next years' class.
Here's a simple way to make old crayons 'new' again.
- crayons, paper removed
- a cupcake mold pan, I am using the silicone kind
What you do:
Arrange broken crayons in the cupcake pan. Don't over fill. I only fill 1/4 of the way up.
Place the cupcake pan on a flat cookie sheet, in a 200 degree oven. Watch carefully! They should take 8-10 minutes to melt, depending on the amount of crayons used. Remove pan when crayons are just melted.
Allow to cool, then remove from pan.
