We are working on Valentines gifts for my daughters pre-school class. Last week when I was cleaning I found about 100 broken crayons and I decided it was time to remake them into cute gifts. I also asked her teacher if she had any broken crayons she would like to see recycled, she has a huge bucket full.
To complete this project you will need:
Wooden sticks or dowel rods
Candy mold or ice cube trays
This project is fairly easy but involves hot wax (melted Crayons) and it takes a bit of time.
Step 1: Making Melting Pots
I use aluminum cans to melt the crayons in. The first thing I do is cut off the tops. You need enough so that they are packed tightly enough in the pot that they will not fall over, I used 8. The top cuts will be sharp.
