New Crayons from Old Ones

August 05, 2008

This short article shows how you can make fun pieces of usable art using old, broken or stubby crayons.


This is a fun project that requires adult supervision. Kids, get your parent’s permission first and stay safe!

  • Unwrap a bunch of old crayons and place them in an old baking pan.
  • “Bake” in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes.
  • The mixture should already have the appearance of a swirly tie-dye experiment. If not swirly enough, use a toothpick or other item to swirl the colors a little more. Be careful not to overdo it or you’re likely to end up with an ugly dark brown (think of when you have combined all the colors on paper!)
  • Use a sharp cookie cutter (metal is probably best) to make out shapes in the crayon (best when it’s still a little warm).
  • Let the wax/pan cool completely.
  • Once cool, punch out your shapes!

These would be great as gifts! I can think of many ways to use these. Can you? Feel free to send suggestions here!
