Recycled crayon craft for Halloween

Check out these amazing Spooky Skulls & Pumpkin Crayons for Halloween.

 Every wonder what to do with your child’s old crayons? Why not do this easy recycled crayon craft for Halloween?! I’ve got a quick and very easy craft for Halloween. Want to try this project for a different holiday?! No problem just switch out your molds.

Supplies:

  • crayons
  • silicone molds (I got mine at Wal-Mart, it’s just a simple candy making mold)
  • your imagination
  • baking (cookie) sheet
I highly recommend having most of your crayons unwrapped before starting this project, especially if you’re doing it with children who can’t unwrap the crayons themselves. Crayons seem to have gotten harder to unwrap. I remember when I was little all you really had to do was slide the wrapper off. Not the case anymore unfortunately. For the particular project I splurged a little on some new Glitter Crayons.

Step 1

Unwrap all the crayons you want to use.

Step 2

Fill your silicone molds with your broken crayons. Fill a little higher than normal. Put your molds on to a flat surface for baking. I just slide my molds on to a cookie sheet. Bake at 250 degree for about 10 to 15 minutes. Don’t forget to peek at your crayons. You can always add more crayons during the baking process if you see your molds aren’t filled to the top with wax.

Step 3

Remove from oven and set aside to cool. When the wax hardens enough go ahead and remove the silicone mold from off of your cookie sheet.

Step 4

Pop your crayons out of the silicone mold and get ready to be AMAZED!!! Your kids are going to love what they created. Pat yourself of the back, you just made a fabulous looking crayon!!


Prepare to amaze your friends and family by giving these fabulous crayons as Halloween treats instead of candy this year! Believe me, your stunning recycled crayons will receive tons of compliments, ours did.
