#1. Love Hearts

This is a sweet idea from Mrs Williamsons Kinders. Use a heart mould to make heart shaped multi coloured crayons out of the broken crayons. This would be perfect for Valentines Day Gifts too.

Melt your broken crayons and then use these cool moulds to make Lego brick or Lego people crayons. Super cool!

The moulds are available from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

#3. Crayon Candle

This is a nice idea from Chaos Ensued to use a jar with broken crayons and a wick to make a crayon candle. And they melted the crayons in the sun too!

#4. Crayon Art

Make fun crayon art with the help of a tealight candle (take care with wee fingers) and dripping crayon wax onto paper, fun idea from Idealstolife.com.

#5. Transparent Window Hearts

Isn’t this a lovely idea? You can find instructions to make Transparent Window Hearts from NAPCP, you will need some waxed paper and some ribbon or string as well as your broken crayons.
