rainy day project {muffin tin crayons}

i had been wanting to do this for a while, and one day a few weeks ago, we finally got down to it.  i had been collecting broken crayons for a while, and we finally had a bag full of them.  beckett was excited to help, and we got to work unwrapping all the crayons.  i was surprised at how long it kept his attention.  he really loved it.

we lined a muffin tin with paper liners and decided to divide them into warm colors and cool colors.  we baked them at 250 degrees for 10ish minutes.  watch them, though, because if you bake them too long they’ll just melt together into a muddy color.  take them out of the oven carefully and let them cool completely.  unwrap, and get to coloring.

  1. Great Idea!!! I think my Pre-K class would love those at center time. I have a huge tub of broken crayons and wasn’t sure what to do with them. I think I will start baking:)
