Kids Activities: Recycle Old Crayons Into New Crayons

Got spare crayon stubs lying around? Make old crayons NEW with this fun recipe!

What You'll Need:

  • Broken crayons
  • An old muffin tin
  • A knife



  1. Gather up all of your broken crayons, remove the wrappers and break them into small pieces.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
  3. Fill the muffin tin with an inch-thick layer of crayon pieces.
  4. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the wax is melted.
  5. Allow the tin to cool; then pop out the crayons, and they're ready for use.


  1. If you don't have a muffin tin to devote to crayon making, you can line your regular muffin tin with foil cups.
  2. Candy and soap making molds can also be used to create fun, shaped crayons.
  3. Recycled crayons make a great no-cost gift or party favor.
