When crayons break kids never seem to want to use them anymore. However, if you recycle them into something new, suddenly they are fun again! We made a set of jumbo crayons by peeling and melting old broken crayons down in muffin tins. But not only that, we made crayon planets and turned them into the the solar system!
How to Make Jumbo Crayons:
We had so much fun making these recycled jumbo crayons! My kids thought it was really cool that we could make swirly colored crayons.
My kids actually really liked peeling the old crayons. It was a little time consuming to peel them, but it really is a simple project overall. If you get your kids involved, it shouldn’t take too long. I usually have to stop my kids from peeling crayons normally, so they were all in on this project.
