I’ll spare you the details. Martha and one thousand other bloggers have already done a tutorial on making muffin crayons. Here’s her tutorial.
I didn’t have any fun muffin pans, so I improvised with skewers, aluminum foil and a 9×13 pan to make Crazy Crayon Sticks! Perfect for little hands.
They even became ‘trains’ to the little one’s imagination.
- Reusing the foil when making many crayons, creates crinkly crayons. Unless you like the look, I don’t suggest it.
- Let cool completely before removing the crayons or they break.
- When unwrapping the old crayons, I soaked the crayons in water to help the wrappers come off. They were ancient crayons and I found it to be helpful, especially for the non-Crayola crayons.
