How to Recycle Old Crayons Into New Ones

How to Make Crayons From Recycled Crayons

Crafter emmymade shared a very handy tip for leftover crayons and nubs. She skillfully sliced the crayons and put them into oiled muffin tins. She then put the pan in the oven at 350°F until completely melted, about three to five minutes. After the mixture cooled off, she popped out brand new fat, muffin bottom-shaped crayons that are perfect for little hands.

Don’t throw away those old crayon stubs. Melt them into new stubby crayons perfect for making leaf rubbings on today’s Emmymade Kiddo Kraft.
