Homemade Crayons

I decided to let the kids create new crayons with old, broken ones. They got a little frustrated trying to get the paper off of them but they both loved breaking them into little pieces.

We used a mini muffin tin to make round crayons. Logan was meticulous about filling the sections.

All done!

I was a little worried that the crayons wouldn't come out of the tin, but most came out easily and the rest were no problem after I put it in the freezer for a bit. The kids loved using their new crayons to color.
