Broken Crayon Crafts

We all love the feeling of a new box of crayons. But don't throw away those broken pieces just yet. You won't believe some of the different ways our favorite bloggers have made awesome crayon craft projects.

Tips For Crayon Crafts

  • Our favorite way to easily peel off the crayon wrapper is to soak the crayons for 10 minutes in warm water. The wrappers will easily fall off.
  • Adult supervision is needed whenever heat is involved in a craft.
  • Make sure to wear gloves or use tongs if heating glass or other conductors to avoid burns.
