If you empty the broken crayon pieces from the bottom of the box you will find what you need for a fun family project. Recycle all those broken crayons into something bright and new. Rainbow Crayons are easy to make and can be used to create some very colorful Motherís Day cards.
You will need:
Crayon pieces or shavings (cheap waxy crayons work best)
Mini muffin tin or disposable baking cups (the disposable star shaped baking cups were our favorite).
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Melt crayons for 5-8 minutes or until melted together. Cool completely. Turn muffin tin upside down and, similar to the way ice cubes are removed from a tray, pop crayons out. Find some paper and color.
Crayola crayons have all the best colors but because they donít melt together they do not make very nice rainbow crayons.
