Don’t throw out those crayon bits. Make them new again!

I am thrilled when I discover a great way to recycle and reuse what I already have, and that happens to be a large box of broken crayons and a very sweet antique mold from the flea market.
I warmed them in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Then, I popped them in the freezer for 10 minutes.

I’m going to wrap these in rice paper (with a pretty, reused ribbon and handmade tag) and give them to someone I know who loves crayons.


About Diana Mercer

I've been delighting in and learning from children for almost 20 years as a teacher, and former owner of Clementine Studio: Art Space for Children. I love to watch a child's spirit emerge and develop through the process of art. I'm also a big fan of stilling my mind with yoga, meditation, and the art of mindfulness, cooking up a fresh, local and organic dinner from the Farmer's Market, making sweet music with my friends, and baking fancy birthday cakes.
