Make Your Own Toddler Crayons

Use clean, dry glass baby food jars to melt broken crayons. I get my crayons from restaurants that give my daughter crayons with a kid's menu.


Sort crayons by color and peel off any paper. Put the crayons into separate jars in a hot water bath. After the crayons have melted, pour the wax into a mold.

I used IKEA ice cube trays (silicone) in the shape of flowers, but you could just fill each section of an old ice cube tray halfway. Wait about 8 hours (overnight), then remove from mold.

I believe toddlers may have a more difficult time breaking the chunkier shapes.
