What you need

Cupcake cups
Oven mitts


Drawing time is a rainbow of colors as your child runs them across the paper releasing all the mixed colors. You can use inexpensive whole crayons or recycle all those broken pieces in the bottom of the toy box.

This crayon cupcake project is great for schools and groups to recycle their broken pieces.

Preheat the oven to 250 deg F.

Remove the paper wrappers from the crayons and put the crayons into a cupcake cup and place the cup cake into a cupcake or muffin tray for support.

Allow them to melt in the oven, melting time may vary depending on your crayons brand so make sure you watch the crayons and once melted take them out. Allow them to cool before touching.

Peel off the cupcake paper and use as normal.
