Melted-Rainbow Crayons

Create rainbow crayons by melting together crayons of different colors.

Time
  • 15 to 30 minutes

Materials

  • Muffin tin
  • Old broken crayons
  • Muffin paper liners

Directions

  1. Why settle for coloring with one color when you can have the excitement of using several at a time? Line muffin tins with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Put several peeled crayons in the cups until they are about half full. You can mix colors or keep them separate.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and put the tins in for about 10 minutes or until the crayons melt.
  4. Remove and let cool before peeling off the paper.

Extensions

  • Make batches with just light or dark colors.
  • Make custom crayons with just your favorite colors.
  • Make batches with similar colors like pinks and reds.
