Use Up Old Crayons

I've seen this idea floating around in various places online and today I thought I'd give it a try.  It s a fun and very quick way to use up broken and worn down wax crayons.  The Easter holidays may be over but this craft is so quick you could do it after school.   

Place your broken and stubby crayons into a silicon cake mould.  You could do single colours but I thought it would be fun to mix them up.  Bake on a baking tray at 130'C for 5mins.

Allow to cool and then turn out.  So simple!

My girls think this is so fun.


  1. That's a fab idea! We have so many broken crayons and they would surely benefit from being blended and baked in this way. One to try this weekend! Thanks Simone for another great tip :D xxx

    1. I hope you and the kids have lots of fun!
