How to Make CHUNKY CRAYONS for your classroom.

Have YOU ever made
CHUNKY CRAYONS?
ALL kids LOVE to draw.
They LOVE big, chunky crayons!

MAKE THEM!

Use the broken crayons from your classroom…
AND
BEG OTHER TEACHERS FOR THEIRS!

Teachers LOVE to get rid of broken crayons.

Then …start searching stores ( including thrift stores, Goodwill, etc )
for silicone shaped candy molds!

If not… my BFF…AMAZON PRIME!
You are NOT making food…
They can be “recycled” …wink , wink!

I found some snowmen, trees, and gingerbreadmen 
at Goodwill for $1.00 !!

Now what?

Have the kids…
YES THE KIDS
…take off ALL the paper wrappers!

DON’T  TELL  THEM  WHY!  🙂

Paper wrappers …I did them MYSELF!

Should have had kids do them…
they would have ENJOYED IT! 🙂

Gingerbreadman

Christmas Trees

Lots DONE… FAST…EASY
If you don’t have a LOT (it takes a LOT) of broken crayons,
ask for donations from other teachers.

Bring the unwrapped, broken crayons home.

Break up the crayons into LITTLE  chucks!

Put them into the molds…press them down a little.

Place molds onto a cookie sheet.

 Bake 60 minutes (1 hour) at 200 degrees.

Take them out & let them cool.
If rushed…PUT THEM IN THE FREEZER!

(Don’t POP them out…until they are SOLID.)

POP them out…

and   VOILA!



I also made them in the SUMMER.

Let me know if YOURS work or not.

    Brilliant! I have these molds, but I cook with them. I probably can’t do both, right? I don’t want crayon-flavored Rice Krispie treats! 🤣

Leave me some LOVE! :)
