Making Crayons

originally posted at

Over a month ago, Andy and I made heart crayons for my students. I gave them each one for Valentines Day. It turned out to be a fun date, and the crayons were pretty simple to make.
1. Break up old dull or broken crayons into small pieces.
2. Place them into a mold in any design you would like.
3. Put them in the oven @ 300 degrees for about 10 minutes or until melted.

4. Take them out of the oven and put them into the freezer to cool for 5-10 minutes.
5. Take them out on a soft surface. You don’t want to dump them on the counter, or they might break.
Now you have multi-colored crayons in a fun new shape. My students loved them. I think one of my students hugged me 5 times that day while thanking me for his new crayon.

The heart on the right kind of looked like a real heart with veins, so I gave that one to the pharmacist…Andy.
