We Painted With Crayons!

What can you do with those old broken crayons? We decided to melt them in the oven and paint with them.

In an oven safe pan or muffin tin, place broken crayons inside and we had the oven preheated at 350 and we placed the crayons in, it took maybe 10 mins for the crayons to look like the picture, all melted.

The first time we stuck it in the freezer to use them for coloring but we changed our mind and added more crayons to it, put it back in the oven and decided to paint our tree with them.

Here are some of the leaves the children painted with the melted crayons

 

 

 

The children had a blast painting the leaves with the fall colors.

We made a tree on the wall for fall afterwards.
