Making crayons

We recently cleaned up our art and coloring station which meant getting rid of all the itty bitty broken crayon pieces. We decided to melt those pieces down to make new crayons…we’ve done it before and its always a big hit.  Seeing as how we live on the face of the sun, this project went really quickly! We set the crayon cupcakes out and they were thoroughly melted within 20 minutes. Cooling and hardening did take a bit longer but we sped up the process by putting them in the freezer.  It was a quick and easy project that the girls loved!
