Quick Tip: Broken Crayons

cara's pic with crayons 018

Around here we have lots of broken crayons.  We used to just throw them out, but recently we found a way to salvage those broken pieces, making them into a whole new crayon creation.

1.  Remove all the paper off of the broken crayons

2.  Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray

3.  Arrange broken pieces in the pan in the color scheme you would like

4.  Put in 200 degree pre-heated oven until melted (about 5 min.)

5.  Take pan out of oven and let cool for a few minutes at room temp, then place the pan in the freezer until solidified.

Do you have other ideas for using up broken crayons?
