Crayon Cookies

Every year I have students, kindergarten through second grade, make crayons. Its a simple yet wonderful activity that children always look forward to. Here is what you will need to make crayons with your class:


* old crayons (don't mix brands since they do melt differently)

* teflon muffin tin. I use the mini size because you get 12 mini's in a tray. You can also use rubber muffin molds


* peel and break crayons into small sizes just big enough to fit into muffin tin.

* Use bright colors....I do not have students use black or brown

* Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 10 minutes. ( you need to watch since each oven is different)

* When crayon is all melted, remove and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

* Crayons should pop out once you flip the tin over. Some may have to be pushed on from the bottom but they all come out easily.

Now, I wouldn't use this tin afterwards for anything else. I'm funny like that. Even after a good washing I would not use it for anything other than crayon making.
