It's time to celebrate!!
Now that all of the business is out of the way, let's get to the good stuff!! In honor of my very first Messy Monday, I decided to make star crayons with my preschoolers. How many of you have more broken bits of crayons than whole crayons? We have a ton and they drive me crazy. What better way to reuse them than to melt them down and make new crayons?!
- Crayons--broken into pieces with all paper removed. If you don't have broken crayon pieces, you can buy a pack of crayons at the dollar store.
- Silicone baking cups--I like silicone because the crayon just pops right out when it is cool and it doesn't stain the silicone or leave any sort of residue. I'm sure you can use regular muffin tins, but I have never tried it.
- An oven--preheated to 200 F.
