- I will piggy back onto idea #1...I use those pieces of wax paper melts
as inserts for a mosaic on black kraft paper. It gives a stain glass
window effect and light shines through the wax paper/crayon like a stain
glass window. Simply cut out the design you want on the black kraft
paper and use it as a pattern to cut out larger versions on the wax
paper, then glue it to one side of the kraft paper. It positively

Subject: [art_education] uses for broken crayons,,,
I am looking for lots of projects to do with TONS of broken
crayons......let's see if we can come up with atleast 50.....
1.shread and sprinkle on wax paper cover with another sheet of wax
iron both together...placemats, greeting cards...mobile..
3. plaques by melting the crayon shavings between 2 sheets of wax paper
a warm iron and let that dry. Then we outlined a shape - like a coffee
or something and cut it out of the shavings after they hardened - then
peeled the wax paper off. Place it in a frame for the wall.
4. I like the notion of melting them into tins for JUMBO crayons and I
wonder if extending the length of them by placing them in a cigarette
would work. You can get them in a couple different lengths
5. I also made rainbow crayons by breaking them up and heating them and
puttig them in muffin tins with liners...cool ...the kids loved them
made for all 578 students my 1st year at this school for Christmas
6. Cut out a piece of sandpaper, the more coarse the better. Allow the
children to draw a picture on the rough surface with leftover crayons.
the sandpaper is all colored, place in the oven on an old cookie sheet
low. It makes a bit of a waxy smell, but once the pictures are melted
sandpaper, let dry and you have an art piece to cherish
7. crayons broken in small bits and shavings, we made a picture on a
of drawing paper. After that, we covered the crayon shaving picture
sheet of paper and ironed the design in, by carefully moving over it
warm iron and slight pressure. Very like a stain glass effect and fun
