This is an oldie but a goodie. Gather up all those broken crayons along with a oven safe mould and you’ll have nice big chunky colorful crayons that are more fun to draw with and easier for toddler hands to grasp. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and chop up your crayon nubs into little pieces (an exacto works really well for this step), pop them in the mould and bake for just a few minutes. Once all the crayon has melted, very carefully transfer them to either the counter or the freezer in you’re in a crafting rush. ¬†That’s it! Try using the alphabet ice cube tray available here to add a teaching element to this DIY.
