Crazy Crayons

Crazy Crayons

We love these crayons! They are so fun, plus they use up all your broken crayons. YEA! This project takes a bit of time so it’s perfect for a rainy day!


Kitchen knife

Cutting board

Broken crayons

Muffin tins (I like mini ones, but the bigger ones also work)


1.  Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

2. Peel the paper off of the crayons and cut into pea-sized pieces. Keep the colors separated so your children can choose which ones they want.

3. Arrange in your muffin tin.

4. Put in oven for 15-20 minutes, until the crayons melt.

5. Let cool. If they stick, place in your freezer for a bit, and they will pop right out.

6. Let your children color with their new crayons!


1. White is useless, unless you’re coloring on dark paper.

2. Two to three colors works out the best. Too many and sometimes your crayons turn out all brown. Also, I recommend using colors that mesh together, like blue and red (green and orange end up brown).

3. You can cook it on a higher setting. Just be sure to watch them closely.

4. Allow to cool in the freezer. Much faster!

  1. I love these ideas Angee! This crayon one is cute, and I bet my kids will love it. Today we had a picnic at the park planned, but it rained so we decided to do it inside instead. It made me think of you and your cute ideas. I love them. Keep them comin!

  2. Thanx, Sara! You are always so sweet!! I also love that you leave me comments! Thanx! Angee 🙂
