Got a bunch of old crayons lying around the house? This is the perfect activity to do with your kiddies. Plus, pulling off the crayon wrappers will not only take a while but will also work on their fine motor skills. In addition, your kids can learn about different states of matter! There are five simple steps to this activity. 1) Pull off any paper from the crayon. 2) Break the crayons in half and place in a muffin tin. 3) Bake in the oven on a temperature lower than 250, should take about 15 minutes to melt the crayons. 4) Pop the muffin tin with the melted crayon in the freezer. 5) 30 minutes later crayons should set, voila! Brand new crayons 🙂
Abby attended our Media Open House back in August and she just loved the activity we did with recycled crayons. This past weekend, Abby decided to try the activity at home except this time she added her own creative touch. Abby used a mini muffin tin instead of a regular size and she ended up with mini crayons! We are so pleased that Abby enjoyed the activity and we’re even happier to share her fantastic photos with all of you.
