Muffin Tin Crayons

posted on: Monday, January 7, 2013

The chilly winter days have had me on the hunt for some fun indoor activities.
This morning's craft was to make Muffin Tin Crayons.
My kids loved this project!
It took up about two hours of our morning from start to finish.
The perfect way to spend a chilly morning inside!

Supplies:
- Crayons-
(I had a box of brand new crayons that I used. It would make a lot more sense to use your broken and used crayons... but for some reason ours disappear before they ever get this way? :) )
-Muffin Tin-

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 270 degrees.
Peel all the paper off of the crayons.
Break them into tiny pieces.
Place into greased muffin tins (I used cooking spray).
Bake for between 8-10 minutes.
You'll want to keep a close eye on them.
Once the crayons begin melting it goes pretty fast!

Once the crayons are completely melted pull them out of the oven carefully.
Set aside and let them cool.
As they cool they will begin to harden back up.

Once they're completely hard tip your muffin tin over and give it a tap!
Your new crayons should pop right out.

Enjoy!
