How To Make Juice Box Crayons

recycled crayonsRecycled crayons are fun to make and you don’t need any fancy molds for these! I decided to take advantage of the back to school prices on crayons and make a fun Halloween treat for my son, using recyclable juice boxes for a mold! Here is how I did it. Oh and you could do this technique with any colors . These chunky crayons are great for toddlers and who doesn’t need more stuff for their toddlers to do?

  1. Gather your materials. You will need crayons, some disposable tin foil muffin liners, a pan, some sparkles if desired , a juice box and your oven.
  2. Set your oven to 250 degrees or lower.
  3. Peel off any paper on the crayons you are using. I am using 6 orange and 3 black crayons.
  4. Break the crayons into smaller pieces and place them in the foil muffin liners- or a small over safe container you don’t mind getting wax all over.
  5. Pop them into your oven and watch carefully, they melt fast.
  6. Cut the top off the empty juice box.
  7. Once the wax is melted, pour one muffin liner full of orange wax into the juice box , put it in the fridge to solidify.
  8. If using sparkles pour them into the black wax now, stir and pop the pan back in the oven .
  9. When the wax is set in the juice box, repeat with the black wax, then the 2nd layer of orange.
  10. Let sit until completely dry.
  11. Cut the juice box and peel off the crayon.
  12. Color using this fun new crayon.
