Recycled Chunky Crayons

Crayons are always the best when you first get them. Over time they break, are stubby and sometimes lose their paper wrapping. Instead of throwing them out, Make and Takes has a solution for us- Recycled Chunky Crayons! It’s so easy and even the kids can help with this one!

  • old crayons
  • muffin tin or cookie cutters
  • vegetable spray


  1. Preheat over to 275 degrees F
  2. Gather all your old crayons and remove any paper left on them
  3. Break them up into smaller pieces
  4. Spray muffin tin with vegetable spray and put some crayons in each spot (mix the colors up to get multi-colored crayons!)
  5. You can use cookie cutters instead of muffin tin for fun shapes!
  6. Place the tin in the over for 7-8 minutes (watch b/c they melt quickly)
  7. When they look melted enough, remove and let cool (place in freezer to speed up cooling process when tin is not too hot)
  8. Once cool, start coloring!
