How to Make Recycled Crayons

Creating recycled crayons is a great way to teach your children the importance of reusing and recycling. It’s a fun way to get your children involved and also can be a great way of teaching colors.



Materials Needed:

  • Molds 
  • Wax crayons
  • Oven

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Unwrap and Break Crayons

Remove paper wrappers from crayons


Break them into small pieces

Arrange Pieces in Muffin Pan

Place crayon pieces in the muffin pan, filling each circle at least half full. Try grouping color families together or create a rainbow all in one. 

Bake Crayons Then Remove From Pan

 Bake for 15 minutes or until wax has completely melted. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely. Once crayons have fully cooled, flip pan over and firmly tap. If some of the crayons don’t pop out easily, just place the pan in the freezer for 10-15 minutes then try again.Admire your amazing results, grab some paper and give each color a go (Image 3). These make wonderful, inexpensive birthday gifts or party favors for kids of all ages.
