At my house my kids use crayons like crazy. They are very creative and create many masterpieces. The question is what do you do with all those broken pieces?
Here are 2 ideas to use up your broken crayons.
Melted crayon art:
Electric candle warmer
Cut squares of wax paper, lay wax paper on top of a candle warmer, once the candle warmer heats up you can draw a picture with your broken crayons. The heat melts the crayon onto the wax paper. This is easy enough for a preschooler to do.
Cake Pop Crayons
Half of a cake pop pan
Broken, naked crayons of any colors
Place numerous broken crayon pieces of different colors in each circle of a cake pop pan. There is no need to grease the pan. Place the pan into the oven on 250 for about 25 minutes or until melted. Carefully remove pan from the oven and place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. When you put the pan into the freezer the melted wax will look nasty. After the wax cools each half circle will pop loose on its own. My kids love doing this!
