How to Make Crayon Circles


Here’s an easy activity your kids might enjoy making with your help.

It will add a little fun to the idea of coloring! (and a great way to use up those broken crayons).

You will need:

  • broken crayons
  • shortening or margarine

Have your kids gather all their broken crayons together and peel the paper off them.

Grease muffin tins with shortening and let your helpers line them with disposable baking cups.

Next, have the kids break up the crayons to no more than 1/2-inch in length and place in baking cups.

Turn the oven to 250°.

*Be sure to turn the oven light on when they are baking so the kids can watch them melt.

Put the muffin tins in the oven and check them after about a minute.

When they are melted together into a circle shape, take them out of the oven.

Let them cool, then take them out of the tin.

These can make some really pretty pictures with the variety of color.
