a New Life for Broken Crayons
Introduction: MINI MUFFIN CRAYONS. I suggest filling the cup up to the top since when the crayons melt, the volume will be less. Try mixing colors for a swirled “tie dye” look or make solid colors if you seem to have 100’s of broken orange crayons!Step 4: MELT THE CRAYONS
Put on an oven mitt and place the mini muffin tin in your pre heated 275 degree oven. The crayons should be melted in about 10 13 minutes. Only an adult should remove the melted crayons from the oven! Carefully place the hot muffin tin on a heat resistant surface and let cool for about 25 minutes. Then place tin in your refrigerator or freezer for about 5 10 minutes. If you place in the refrigerator/freezer before cooled the muffins may crack from the extreme temp. change. Invert the muffin tin onto a dish towel covered surface and the chilled mini muffin sized crayons should fall right out. Since crayons are non toxic you should not have to worry about baking real muffins in your favorite tin.
