We have so many broken crayons that I’m going crazy. I don’t want to just throw them away, but I hate keeping them around since they just don’t get used.
Then I came across this DIY crayon hearts craft on Pinterest. But just the pic. No written directions linked to the picture. So we thought we’d give it a try and write down directions for you all.
Have your kids go through all their crayons and pick out all the broken ones. Have them unwrap each one.
Bake at 230* for 15 minutes. (Be careful pulling them out. They will be complete liquid.)
Let cool and solidify for a few hours on your stovetop or cooling racks. Once solid, they’ll pull away slightly from the edges of the pan, just enough to pop out with your fingernail.
Seriously, these were SO easy to do and the girls had a blast. And believe me, I’m not the craft mom I imagine all kids want. THIS is easy. And fun.
(I think this would be super cute for Valentine’s Day. Or if you have tins for Halloween! Or any other holiday for that matter. What a great gift for classmates that doesn’t cost a thing.)
