Old Crayons (Remove those pesky paper wrappers) – Silicone Molds (Find a variety at craft stores or online) – Oven or MicrowaveKnife or Scissors

Gather Your Supplies: Find your old crayons, peel off those pesky paper wrappers, and grab your silicone molds. Preheat your oven to 250°F (or get a microwave-safe dish ready).

Sort and Chop:  Decide on your color combos and break those crayons into smaller pieces. This makes them melt faster!

Get Creative!: Fill your molds with fun color mixes and patterns. You can even try layering for a cool rainbow effect.

Melt Time! Oven: Pop your filled molds in for about 10-15 minutes. Microwave: Heat for 1-2 minutes. Just keep a close eye on them to make sure they don't burn.

Cool Down: Once everything's completely melted, take your molds out and let them cool for at least an hour.  They need to be totally solid before you pop them out.
