Sun Crayons

Broken crayons happen. You can melt them into something new using the heat from the sun! The sun during a hot summer day has the power to fry an egg on the sidewalk, change solid water into liquid, and even melt pieces of crayons. Using just a few tools, you can recycle the old unused crayons into new shapes. The shapes can be a rainbow of colors or solid, and make great new crayons. Use this diy project as a lesson in how the sun heats the earth!

Materials:

  • Recycled/Broken/Old crayons
  • Cookie cutter shapes
  • Aluminum foil
  • Glitter
  • Cookie sheet or plate

 

Instructions:

  1. Put your cookie cutter shapes on the cookie sheet
  2. Peel off any paper from the crayons
  3. Break crayons into smaller pieces and put inside of your cookie cutter shape
  4. Cover tightly with aluminum foil to increase heat
  5. Place in direct sunlight so that the crayons melt, add glitter for sparkling crayons
