How to Recycle Crayons

My kids love to color with crayons. We have a bin full of crayons where we put them all. It makes it easy for storing and when we want to use them we just take the bin. I am a really organized person so having an easy way to store all the crayons is wonderful. I don’t want crayons all over the house 🙂 But let’s get real; the crayons break and get smaller; so you probably end up having lots of small pieces that are difficult to use. Thanks to my sister, who sent me a cool and incredible tool that you can use to recycle all those small and broken crayons. If you are thinking about throwing them out, don’t do it! Check out this great and crafty idea. Yay!

This wonderful tool is a Silicone Crayon Mold. But let me start by telling you that the packaging is unbelievable. It is so cute! I was so impressed that it came in a unique box that you can use for storing the molds. Amazing! But that is not all, when you open the box you are going to see a mini brochure with all their products, and in the back, there is even a coupon code. Woohoo! Who doesn’t like to save money? It also came with instructions on how-to, tips, tricks and ideas. It is important to mention that the instructions are very descriptive and they include many pictures; making them easy to follow and to understand. There is even a part where it shows you how to wash the molds.

Now let me show you how to use it. First, you get all the crayons and remove the paper. Then put them in the mold in small pieces.

Next, pre-heat the oven and place your mold in the oven for 15 minutes approximately.

When done, put them in the freezer or refrigerator for a couple of minutes. Lastly, take the crayons out of the mold slowly. And that’s it! You now have a completely unique and colorful crayon. High five for that!

My kids are in love with these crayons. They are super fun to use since they have many colors in just one crayon, and as you use them they keep changing color.

Another wonderful and unique idea is to give them as gifts for students, teachers, mother’s day and more. Incredible! Definitely, there are many uses and ideas.

I personally highly recommend this product and we can’t wait to use it again. So make sure to get your Silicone Crayon Molds by My Fruit Shack. I used the Silicone Molds Flower and Cute Critters, but they also have Silicone Animal Molds that are as cute. Use the coupon code: FRUITS15 for a 15% discount.

I also made a YouTube video for my channel that shows how to use it the Silicone Crayons Molds; here is the link. Check it out! And Make sure to subscribe.

Happy creating!
