Use a muffin tin and mix up melted crayon pieces
 for fun chunky crayons.

Grab a soap mold, cupcake mold, or chocolate mold, and lightly spray with non-stick spray. Then, insert broken crayon pieces- melt slowly, check often, and stir.

Then, color with a Hippo! Make different shapes to pair with companion books or lesson plans. Preschoolers and kindergartners love chunky crayons. Including them in the process art makes an awesome science lesson for little ones.

Play-doh Molds work too, be careful not to melt your plastic.

Tip:  Use Plastic Molds in Microwave and check often as you would for chocolate, stirring every few seconds helps speed up the process. When using muffin tins, bake at low temp (250-300) and stir occasionally. Be careful not to let the crayon wax burn. The crayons slide out easily when using non-stick spray.

We made these years ago with our Summer Camp Program. Lots of Bloggers have twists on the idea. If you have one, leave a linky in the comment section (tell us your two cents) below.
