A box of jumbo crayons for toddlers can cost as much as $9. It's simple, and far more affordable, to make your own crayons in the oven.
This is a great project to stock up for when school supplies are one sale. Eight-packs of crayons are often just 50 cents. Your child will love the round crayons that are easy to hold, and you'll love spending less than $2 on the craft.
Use the edge of the scissors to slit open and remove the crayon wrappers.
Break the crayons into about 5 pieces each and put the pieces of each color into separate muffin holes. The mini muffin hole should easily hold 3 broken crayons.
Place the pan into a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 8 minutes until the crayons are completely melted.
Let the pan cool for about 30 minutes or until the crayons have hardened. Pop the crayons out of the muffin pan.
Let your toddler sit on the ground with the crayons and a large sheet of paper and watch the art begin!
