Upcycled Crayons

January 02, 2014

I came up with this recycled/upcycled idea for crayons while cleaning up the kids art supplies. Instead of throwing away all those small and broken pieces I converted them into new bright and colorful stars. My 3 year old  received these in his stocking, they are the perfect size for toddler dexterity.



Materials needed : crayons, mold, pot of water, baby jar or any glass jar, bamboo skewer 


  1. Gather all your old funky crayons and take of the paper wrappers . Go find your favorite shape molds


   2.  Fill a pot halfway with water and set to a boil. Put your crayons color selection in the jar and set in pot.


      3.  Stir the crayon with the skewer as it melts. Once the crayon is completely melted pour into your mold.(Be careful use tongs or a towel to take the jar out)


4.        Let the crayon cool completely and pop out, hand them over to the kids and watch them enjoy
