Recycle broken crayons

Recycle those broken up crayons in minutes.
Peel off all paper and break into small pieces. Put a few pieces n each hole of a muffin tin. I used a mini muffin tin. Add enough to cover the bottom.

Pop in the oven at 300 degrees for 5 minutes or until melted. then throw them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until set. Turn over and tap to remove them.

That is a great idea. My two year old is always breaking his crayons and it seems like a waste to toss them. The other day I was wondering if the same idea would work for bar soap. Once it gets to a certain size my hubby doesn't like using it anymore, thought it's still perfectly good soap. Anyway, great blog - came across from the TopMomma page.

C had to have one of those Crayola crayon car makers, same principal only it takes an hour to make 2 car bodies. We save it for chilly rainy days.

Maybe I'll be able to convince him to help with these instead!
