There may be nothing new about recycling crayons (after all, my mom was doing it in the 50′s), but there’s something about molding something old into a new version of itself that’s so uniquely…now.
This project is a usable, versatile craft for all ages. The finished product makes great teacher gifts, favors for birthday parties, or back-to-school treats for the kids. Have fun experimenting with different color combos and tray shapes–I personally, have my eye on on a robot ice tray for our next batch–and use this opportunity to chat with your children about everything from the basic chemistry of wax properties changing, to where colors fall on a color wheel. Have fun!
