Reusing Broken Crayons - Crayon Discs

This is a super fun way to reuse broken crayons! Not only can you reuse the crayons, but all of your little helpers can work alongside you. 

You'll need:
Broken crayons
Muffin tin
Cooking spray

 Preheat the oven to 275*. 
Start by cleaning up the crayons and pulling off the paper.

 Grease the muffin tin and start dropping the crayons in it.

 Have fun mixing the colors up! We liked doing different shades and then we had one muffin cup for "sparkle" crayons only. 

 Be sure to have the little helpers help peel and dump the crayons in the tin as well!

 Set the tin in the oven for 10 - 20 minutes. Watch them carefully as different colors will melt quicker then others. As soon as they've melted, pull them out and let the pan sit on a table for 15 minutes. Then place it in the freezer for 5 - 10 minutes or until the edges start to pull away from the sides.

 Pop the little crayon discs out and set them on waxed paper to finish cooling.
