Broken Crayons = Rainbow Star Crayons!!

We decided to take our broken crayons and put them to good use instead of tossing them in the garbage. We turned  our broken crayons into rainbow star crayons! 
I used a knife to cut the larger pieces into smaller pieces.

My son filled a silicon ice cube tray from the dollar store with the crayon pieces.
I put it in the oven at 230 degrees for 15 minutes.

Let the wax cool completely before removing them from the tray.
Aren't the pretty?


  1. Wow! You could add a ribbon and make a Christmas ornament!

  5. I am saving my broken crayons for this right now! And with the number that seem to be breaking on a daily basis, we'll be making these soon.
