Recycled Crayons - Don't throw those used and abused crayons away! Bring them back to life! These are so fun and easy to create! Anyone can do it! #InspirationaMomma #RecylcedCrayons #DIY #Upscale #Recycle #Craft #Crayons #Kidscraft

Be honest!  Somewhere in your house, maybe in a bottom drawer or on a top closet shelf, you have a secret stash of used and abused crayons.  Some are broken, others have lost their wrappers, and none of them have their bright, vibrant color they did the day they came out of the box.  I have stared that our bin of neglected crayons time and time again.  Being the frugal mom that I am, I just couldn’t toss them.  I always kept telling myself that someday I would find a use for them.  Today is that day!!!

My children love our Recylced Crayons!  I also love that they can help create them because this process is SO easy!

There are so many reasons why I like this project!  The most exciting part for me is watching my kiddos’ faces as they look into the oven and watch the crayons melt together!  Magic before their eyes!  They also love to experiment by mixing different colors together!  It usually turns into a competition, and I am forced to choose the winner of the batch!

The second reason that I love our Recycled Crayons is because they are so much easier to work with for our two younger children.  Instead of focusing on holding those skinny little crayons, they have something larger to hold on to and color with!  The gorgeous creations are endless and will forever wallpaper our refridgerator!  Now it is your turn!  Happy Melting!

    1. I have never tried them without liners, but I don’t see why they would stick. Seeing that they are wax, I would think they would just pop out! If you ever give it a try, please let me know!

    1. Each time I do this, I get a sense of accomplishment! Way better than throwing them away! And I know your little one will love to help!

    1. Thankfully I have a little photography experience under my belt! And let me tell you…taking pictures of objects is much easier that living things : )
