Do you have lots of crayons that need to be recycled? You can recycle them yourself in a fun new useable shape! Crayons are made out of paraffin wax. When heated, the wax reaches its melting point and melts into the new shape of the mold you choose. Once they harden... ta da! A new crayon shape!

(This was also a great project for gross and fine motor skill development as well as learning to follow instructions.)
