I don’t know about you but we always seem to have tons of broken crayons in our cupboard where we keep the art supplies. I hate to waste stuff so I looked around for ideas to use up those broken crayons. Here are 10 funky things to do with broken crayons:
#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!
#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.
