R is for Rainbow

Last week we worked on R is for Rainbow. Came across this activity to go along with it and had to share!

Rainbow Crayons

- old, broken crayons
- metal muffin pan (we used the mini one)

Preheat oven to 250.

First peel the paper off your old crayons.

Marie got tired of doing this quickly so while I peeled the paper off, she tried braking them and put them in the mini muffin pan.

Jack was determined to push a chair up to the counter like his sister.
Stick them in until the crayons are melted (10 minutes-ish).


Let them cool and pop them out.


We used some pretty cheap crayons so Marie got a little frustrated that they didn't color very well sometimes. So Derek cut a few of them into strips and that seemed to work better. The kids had a great time!


  1. Cool!! What a great idea. Your muffin pan is so clean. Wish I could keep mine looking new like that! lol

  2. What a great idea! Thanks for posting - we'll definitely try this sometime!
