Recycled Colors Project

We did a recycling project today.  It can be done with kiddos of any age, and it only takes a short amount of time with no prep work.  Also, there is no cost, as everything you need is right at your fingertips.  These are perfect for all ages; and make really cool swirling colors as you sweep them across paper.  Get started recycling your crayons today!  Simple recipe follows below...

Broken Crayons (broken up into small pieces, with the wrapper off)
Baking Oil Spray
Muffin Tin

Spray the muffin tin with baking oil spray.  Place one layer of crayons in each muffin cup.  Bake at 275 F for 8 minutes.  Let them completely cool.  Pop them out (literally pop the bottoms) and enjoy them for coloring time.
