RECYLCING CRAYONS [From: Color]
Written by: Beri Bek [Beri is a parent, teacher and artist]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

Don't throw those old crayons away, recycle them! Many of us have stashes of broken crayons. Here's a way to recycle them.

What You Need:

•muffin tins (old ones that you don't bake with anymore)
•oven
•lots and lots of broken crayons

What You Do:

  1. Peel all the broken crayons, little kids are great at this. (Personally I like an Exacto knife)

  2. Opitonal: place muffin liners in the muffin tins.

  3. Sort by color and fill muffin tins loosely with crayon bits.

  4. Mixing colors is fine too: white and red for pink - experiment!

  5. Put your filled muffin tins into a 250 f. oven for about 20 minutes.

  6. Let then cool completely after baking. In the fridge, outside if it's cool or freezer.

  7. Pop them out and they're ready to go.

  8. The crayons are great for large motor skills and on the floor masterpieces.
