Pinterest Craft

I had too many old, used crayons I didn't know what to do with.  When I saw this idea on Pinterest I just had to do it!  First, you take the paper off of the crayons.  Then, break them into small pieces.  Put the pieces in a muffin pan mixing the colors if you would like.  In the oven at 275 degrees let the crayons melt (takes about 10 minutes).  Then take them out of the oven and let them cool.  When they are cooled, they will pop right out of the muffin pan.  You can even use different shaped muffin pans like hearts or pumpkins to create different shapes!  You can use these during class time or give them to your students for fun gifts.


  1. This is such a fun activity! We did this last year at our school as an Earth Day activity!

  2. Did you know that if you soak the crayons in water, the wrappers will peel off easily?
