Gather all your broken crayons. Decide what pan or mold you will use. We use the mini muffin tins. You can also use just about any silicone or other forms of cupcakes/cookie/cake molds to make different shapes. We have a mini gingerbread mold that we will be making in the winter.
Peel all the papers off of the crayons. This is a great job to keep kiddos busy for a while. If your little one has a hard time peeling them, give them a hand by using knife to slit down the side of the crayon. Then, let your kiddos go at it pulling them off. It’s wise to pre-cut slits in them ahead of time to make it easier and for safety.
- Very lightly spraying your pan with a non-stick spray. (this may give greasy results)
- Using muffin/cupcake paper cups..This gives you a “Reese Cup” appearance on the edges.
- Using silicone molds. They are much easier to pop out.
- You may want to dedicate whatever pan or mold you use, to just crafts. Cleanup can be tricky.
