There are broken bits of crayons littering every corner of my home. Until they make unbreakable crayons or my kids get beyond the age of coloring, I’m sure there will continue to be an abundance of broken bits of crayons. Fortunately, those broken bits can be made whole again in a few easy steps.
1. Preheat oven to 250° and have a silicone baking tray at the ready.
2. Remove all paper wrappings from broken bits of crayons.

3. Place broken bits of crayon in silicone mold. I chose star-shaped molds because I thought the points of the stars would be useful for coloring, but you can use any shape you like.
4. Fill the mold with crayon pieces (you can separate the pieces by hue or just mix them up like we did) then place the silicone tray in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
5. Once the crayons melt and turn “soupy”, remove them from the oven and let them cool. We put them in the fridge to speed up the process.

6. When cool the crayons will come out of the mold easily and you will be left with
a lovely constellation of colors. These multicolored ones change color as you draw…trippy dude.
