We used to always make crayons when we were kids. I had some craft kit with different shapes. This is certainly a project to remember. You can even used cookie cutters and wax paper, I think, to make different shapes.
"Tools and Materials
- Kitchen knife
- Old crayons
- Mini-cake tins (we used pans with heart- and circle-shaped pockets)
- Parents can use the knife to chop crayons into pea-size pieces, taking care to keep colors separate so kids can combine them as they like.
- Preheat the oven to 150 degrees while children fill the tin with crayon pieces, arranging them in interesting designs.
- Bake just until the waxes have melted, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Remove the shapes after they have cooled. If they stick, place tray in the freezer for an hour, and the crayons will pop out."
