Confession: I have more broken crayon bits in my house than actual whole crayons. It goes something like this – We get a new pack of crayons, the kids use them once or twice, 2/3 of them break and all of those broken pieces end up somewhere in the abyss. And because apparently no one in my family knows how to clean up after themselves, I would end up finding these little crayon pieces all over the place and at some point I decided that enough was enough. I grabbed an old shoe box and started putting all the broken crayons I came across in there….and there they have sat, collecting dust, for several years.
I was at the store recently and found a really cute bunny mold. I thought it would be super cute to make new crayons out of and that’s exactly what I did. I took out the box of old crayons and got to work making some bunny crayons with the kids. It’s a fun Easter activity to do with the kids and they seriously could not be easier to make!

4. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes or completely melted.
5. Remove from oven and let cool completely and pop out of molds.
