Making new crayons from old ones!
I decided to spend some time sorting out the crayons/pencils and pens from the craft boxes. I found loads of small broken crayons that would never be used and that were destined for the bin. We decided to rescue them and make them in to new crayons!
We peeled the paper from them and broke them in to tiny pieces - children love this, when do they ever get permission to snap crayons?!
We popped them in to cake cakes as we wanted to make cupcake shaped crayons! 5 minutes in the oven and they had all melted.
Once cooled and set they looked like this -
Perfect for wee baby hands to grasp and explore with!
