I’ve alway been a fan of the quote, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without”. It’s one of my favourite quotes and today, we are recycling and reusing old crayons to create something new.

It’s a fab idea and something the kids will love to make and enjoy to use after. You can make this with any shape mould but as it’s an Easter themed post we are making Easter Bunny Crayons on the blog today.

What You Will Need

In order to recycle old crayons you will need to gather the old and broken crayons you find around the home. You also need a moud which could be any shape.

  1. This is so awesome! I am going to be doing this with the kids we have so many broken crayons from my two-year-old this is fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you for sharing!

  2. These are SO. CUTE! Now I’m anxious to make some with my kids – we have about a zillion crayons in our house that never get colored with because they aren’t “new” anymore. This is such a great way to revive them and make them cool again so they aren’t being wasted anymore!

  3. This super adorable! I have always wanted to try making my own crayon molds like this. A friend said the part that takes the longest is unwrapping the crayons. Do you have a suggestion for that process.

  4. What an awesome idea. I have a ton of small crayon parts just in a bucket that my daughter broke. I kept them for something, but I wasn’t sure what. I knew there had to be fun crafts like this to make use of them!

  5. It’s so very easy! It would be nice to do this with all the crayons that the twins used to use for school when they were little. It’s a nice giveaway for kids.

  6. My daughter and I have done something similar before. It’s really fun and it’s a great way to recycle old crayons. We sort them according to color though so that she can still use the original colors.

  7. I love this idea. My son is to young right now for crayons. Everytime I give him one he ends up eating it least tries to so colored pencils for now. I definitely will keep this for when he does.

  8. OH my goodness, this is such a cute idea. I’m so glad I didn’t throw out the kids broken crayons this weekend like I had planned to.
