Activity

Crayon Cookies

Kid made Crayon Cookies


Materials

  • Pieces of broken or short crayons, paper removed
  • Foil cupcake liners
  • Muffin tin
  • Ziploc bag
  • Meat tenderizer or wooden mallet
  • Oven

Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place crayon pieces into a Ziploc bag. Break the crayons into smaller pieces with the meat tenderizer or mallet.
  3. Line with muffin tin with foil liners and fill each about 1/4 of the way
    full with broken crayon pieces.
  4. Place the muffin tin in the oven and heat until the pieces have almost
    melted together. You should be able to see some individual colors
    and some blended colors.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool. Show your child how the colors have
    melted and mixed. Talk about how two colors can be mixed together can make a new color.
  6. When cool, help your child peel off the liner and have fun with your new cookie crayons. When used for drawing, your child may see different colors in one stroke.
