Reduce, Reuse, Recycle :: Crayon Cupcakes

I have a hard time throwing crayons away after we get them at a restaurant so I have been collecting them in a bag for a rainy day. Well, today was rainy so we had a bit of fun! 

(BTW, what a great way to give yourself five minutes to change a diaper, talk to the phone repair guy, take a hot pizza stone out of the oven, change another diaper...."Hey Gracie, want to peel some more crayons? YEAH!!!!")

Here's how you do it:

Peel paper off of crayons

Break into little pieces and fill foil cupcake molds 2/3 full.

Bake 10-15 minutes in a 275 degree oven. Cool in freezer.

Enjoy your new rainbow crayon creation!

There are lots of great ideas on Real Simple's website for new uses for old things.

What is one of your favorite websites with great ideas like this one?
