I wanted to share this great recipe with everyone!! You can make your own crayons into really fun shapes!! You will need to purchase a muffin tin with the shape of the crayons you want to make. They have star shapes, flower shapes, etc. Your local craft store is a great place to purchase one!
This is a great idea for birthday party favors!! For my daughter's birthday I am going to make the rainbow crayons, put them into a clear bag and tie them with a bow!! They should make fun education party favors!! I will post some pictures next month when I make them!!

Makes : 6 crayons

Ingredients: About 3 cups of peeled crayon stubs in a variety of colors

Other things you'll need:
Fun shaped Muffin Tin

  1. Place peeled crayon stubs in the muffin tin, filling to 1/2 inch from the top of each muffin mold.
  2. Put muffin tin in 250 degree oven
  3. Turn off heat when crayons have melted, but do not remove tin!
  4. Allow oven to cool completely before removing crayons
  5. Tap bottom of tin to make the crayons pop out.


  1. To maintain the rainbow effect, do not move the muffin tray until crayons have cooled completely. If colors mix while hot they become one muddy color instead.
  2. Use good-quality crayons for the best results~ sorry Roseart~ but Crayola works best
