Thanks to Tales of Domestica for this money saving idea for using old crayons to make new crayons. I have never tried this before but have always wanted too… I know my kids would love it!

First step to make new crayons, you will need to take the paper off your old broken crayons. Then sort your crayons into like colors. The kids like it, plus it is great for them to learn to sort and group items together.
Next add like colors into a tin can, or an old pot. If you use a tin can put it into another pot with water around it to make a double boiler of sorts. Over low heat melt your crayons.
Once your crayons are melted pour them into the silicone ice cube trays. Allow to cool then pop from the molds. Then let your little ones color and have fun with their new crayons. Who knew it was so simple to make your own crayons.
More ideas, projects and fun things to do with your kids this summer.
