Never throw away those little crayon pieces again. The Crayola Crayon Maker lets you be the mad scientist of color, recycling your crayon pieces into new color-swirled creations. Kids get to make completely original crayons with mixed color combinations by melting down different crayons in the Crayon Maker.
Here is how it works. The kit comes with four classic-colored crayons, which you can break into pieces and mix together in the machine’s melting trays.
When melting crayon pieces in the metal melt tray, the safety-latch lid stays locked. The lid is clear so kids and adults can watch while the crayons melt.
When the crayons have melted down and blended together, a yellow lever on the side of the Crayon Maker tilts the tray to pour the melted crayons into the molds. With two compartments, the melt tray allows you to pour two new color designs at a time, which means you get two of each for the four crayon molds. Once hardened, the flexible plastic mold frame snaps open to show the newly formed crayons with exciting color combinations. With their new homemade crayons in hand, kids will be ready and psyched to color like never before!
Adult supervision is still necessary even though the Crayon Maker is designed well for child safety. Thankfully, this is a Christmas gift that parents can actually enjoy along with their children.
