I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of melting crayons to make new shapes. It’s a great way to re-purpose old, stubby crayons and bring them back to life! To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to make shamrock shaped crayons. These make fun favors to hand out and bring good luck!

Shamrock Crayons – Materials:

Shamrock silicone pan

– Old crayons (we mixed up greens, oranges and yellows)


Step 1. Take the paper wrappers off your old crayons. Break the crayons in small pieces. The smaller the faster they will melt. Lay them inside the silicone cavity – we chose to only fill up about halfway through because we didn’t want a super thick crayon.

Step 2. Bake at a preheated 300 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until completely melted. Remove from oven and make sure to cool completely before you remove them.

Have you ever tried melting crayons? You can do with them any old crayons and turn them into any new shapes.
