I'm not going to reinvent the wheel here...
I followed No Time For Flashcards’ Tutorial to make my own crayons using old, broken crayons. I should have listened to a bit of advice she gave and not used washable crayons. The washable portion separated (as evidenced from the photo above, it’s a tad lighter). It makes it more difficult for the kids to color with. However, it was very simple to do and the kidlets didn’t seem to mind. You can also use silicone/ice cube trays (photo below), but don’t plan on reusing them after this project. And don’t melt the crayons directly into the ice cube trays. I would follow No Time For Flashcards’ crayon melting tutorial using candy molds, if you were going to try the ice cube tray method.

Have fun melting!
