Recycled Crayons


What do you get if you cross a baking mould, broken crayons, a duck and an oven?

 

Don’t know……….

 

Recycled funky new crayons (I lied about the duck)

 

Here’s how.

 

Find all your old, broken crayons and remove all the paper from them

If they’re too big, break them into smaller pieces

Fit the broken crayons into your mould. Any silicone mould will do. We’ve done

this with fish and flower moulds before. This time we used small chocolate moulds.

Either stick all the crayons of one colour in a mould or mix them up and create

multi-colour crayons.

place into moulds

Set your oven to around 100°C

Place in the middle of the oven and leave until they’ve melted.

This should take about 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool & solidify.
