Can These Crayons Be Saved?

All those broken crayons...We can remake them!  Peel off the paper...

Break the crayons further, arrange them just so....

I found this gear-shape silicone candy/cupcake pan on clearance.  I'll reserve it for non-edible projects.

335 degrees, 5-8 minutes. Are they all melty? Let them cool for quite awhile.

While they are cooling....April Fool's glasses!!!

Time to check the crayons!

Crayon gears! (OK, it is probably supposed to be flowers, but we have a bunch a Sm'Art boys, and they may not get into flower crayons.  Marketing is important.)

Bonus: you can angle the crayon gear to do 2 lines at once.

Lots of others have melted crayons before me.  Here are a few who've talked about it:  Crispy, cool layered crayonsScribble cookies.


  1. It was a lot of fun,and something we'll have to do again at our house. We found those lost glasses by the way!

  2. I still have one girly pair extra, plus a cool mechanical pencil...
