It’s so easy to make your own crayons. Well, make your own chunky crayons. You still need actual crayons, lol.

First, start with broken crayons.

You should remove all paper and break them up as small as possible.
I also sorted mine by color.

Then, bake them at 200 until they melt completely. I think I read that it should take about 15 minutes. But it varies based on the crayon and the size of the pieces. Be careful not to keep them in too long.

Let cool and remove from pan. I had to stir a few of mine.
