DIY-Old to New Crayons!

Have tons of broken crayons laying around you don't want to throw away but have no use for? Or would you just love something different from plain and boring? Well do I have a DIY for you!

These are also great for little hands that can't quite grasp a pencil thin crayon just yet!

Here's what you do:
Divide pile of crayons into separate cups according to color family

Peel paper off of all crayons..

Melt colors in pot

Pour melted wax into molds
Let dry until wax is pulling away from sides. (These should easily pop out)

Place in cute bag to give as a gift or start coloring away!!

 **The Reality:
It's messy and takes a while if you're only using one pot.  Clean up wasn't too bad once the wax dried, I just had to scrape it off with a spatula. 

 But she had so much fun coloring with all her SHOES!
