Colored Crayon Balls
- Old and broken crayons
- Used plastic sandwich bags
- Twist ties
- Muffin pans
Peel the paper off the old crayons and break them into small pieces. Select a group of several different colors and place them in the sandwich bag. Seal tightly with a twist tie. Put several bags of crayon pieces in the muffin pan. Place the pan in the sun or in a slightly warm oven for twenty minutes or until the crayon wax is soft. It should never be hot. With the crayons still in the bags, shape them into balls. Drop the bags into ice-cold water. Remove the firm balls from the bags and use them to color.
