Kids Crafts; Baking crayons

Updated on January 30, 2012

If you ever asked yourself 'What to do with old crayons?' You have come to the right place. I am here to show you how to bake crayons and reuse them. Crayon crafts can be use again for coloring, or hand them out as gifts for other children or just something cute for Valentines Day. Old crayons are harder to use because their is barely any crayon left! Well now you can use them again to color with, if your interested then keep reading for what you will need and the instructions!

What you will need♥

Crayons new or old

Heart baking sheet or whatever shape you want (I suggest getting a new one and using it only for this craft so you don't happen to get sick from eating wax!)

Glue, colorful paper, glitter, and etc. For if you want to make these reused crayon hearts and put them on envelopes. Have fun and enjoy:)


First tear apart your crayons into small pieces, you can use different colors or just one so you can have a one colored crayon. I personally think it looks pretty cool when a bunch of colors are mixed together especially if your giving it as a gift. Then after all of your molds are full with your pieces of crayon, you will want to preheat your oven to 230 degrees. After your oven has preheated you will want to put your crayon pieces into the oven for 15 minutes. Once finished let cool and pop out of the molds and you have your perfect crayon heart! You can color with these, put a bunch in a jar and use as a center piece or you can glue them onto a homemade card.

For homemade cards: Get a piece of sturdy cardstock and decorate how you would like. Glue on the crayon heart with strong glue (I like tacky it works for everything). Then your card is all ready to go! Have fun doing this craft if it's for Valentines Day or not I know you will have fun seeing all of the beautiful colors form together! Thanks for reading:)
