A few days ago, last Wednesday, Alicia and I made multicolored crayons. For those who don’t know, you take crayons and you melt them in the oven to create a nugget of crayon with beautiful colors.
The supplies needed include:
- A box of crayons. It helps if you have a lot of crayons or crayons that are old and unusable for coloring.
- A muffin tins and liners
- A sharp knife
First, you have to peel off the paper that’s on the crayons. It helps to have a group of people peeling because it takes forever. While peeling, preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Keep the oven temperature low.
After all the crayons are naked, break them up by either snapping them in pieces with your hands or chopping them up with a knife.
Place the pieces in a lined muffin tin. Use a variety of colors in each liner. Alicia and I separated them by warm and cool colors.
Put the tin in the oven and let the crayons melt for 15 minutes.
Take out the crayons and let cool either on the stove top or in the fridge. Our crayons were fine on the stove.
And then you are done! Color away!
Much love and summer fun!
Molly and Alicia
