Have YOU ever made
ALL kids LOVE to draw.
They LOVE big, chunky crayons!
Use the broken crayons from your classroom…
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 !!
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! 🙂
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…
I also made them in the SUMMER.
