Chubby Fall Crayons

Copyright © 1999 Dorothy LaFara, By Amanda Formaro

Do you have what seems like hundreds of broken crayons laying around? Before you toss them in the garbage, enjoy a fun project with your kids! We’ve chosen fall colors—to help us color our fall coloring pages.--but you can choose any combination that you like.


5 and up

This project is rated VERY EASY to do.

What You Need

  • Cupcake/muffin tin
  • Broken crayons
  • Vegetable oil
  • toothpick

What You Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Remove all the paper labels from crayon pieces.
  3. Put ¼ teaspoon of vegetable oil into each muffin pan cup, no cup liners needed.
  4. You will use the equivalent of 4 new crayons for each cup. Place broken crayons (no longer than an inch each) into the muffin pan. This will fill the cup about 1/3 full.
  5. Place into the preheated oven and watch carefully, they melt quickly!
  6. Bake crayons for 8 minutes or so.
  7. When the crayons begin to melt, remove them from the oven and stir gently with a toothpick.
  8. Crayon will look “ugly” and the colors may appear blended too much. Don’t worry! They look much better on the other side.
  9. Let the crayons cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, pop the crayons out of the muffin pan by tapping on the backside of the pan. Crayons should fall right out.

Helpful Hints

  • If you have any new crayons available, use one as a measuring stick. Lay broken crayon pieces along side of the new crayon to measure out 4 full sized crayons. This is how many you will need for each completed chunky crayon.
  • Be sure to use extreme caution around kitchen utensils and the oven. Always use oven mitts and do not stick you fingers into the melted crayons.
  • If you don’t have any broken crayon pieces, you can buy a large box of cheap crayons at the Dollar Store.
