Crayons can be used for so much more than coloring and this crayon slime recipe proves just that! Instead of tossing out those broken or smaller pieces of crayons, why not give this simple and fun kids craft a try?
I don’t know about your house but in our house, we have a lot of stubby and broken down crayons that no one wants to use. (Crayons have to have a good point to color, right?!) But every time I thought about tossing those crayons in the trash, I always hesitated because I felt like it was such a waste.
This is why I’m crazy about this fun crayon slime recipe. It allows you to find another use for those crayons that are no longer useful for coloring!

Ingredients needed for Crayon Slime:
- 1 airtight container
- 1 5 oz bottle of clear glue
- A ½ cup of water
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp contact solution (I almost fill mine up…not quite!)
- Small bowl
Directions to make crayon slime:
Gather up all your ingredients before you get started. That way you’ll be able to make and enjoy playing with the slime that much more quickly.
Choose the color crayons you want in your slime. I picked about 8 crayons in different rainbow colors.
Peel the wrapper off.
Using the scissors, shave the crayon. Kid scissors will work too, so kids can help! I collected my crayon shavings on a piece of wax paper to make transferring them easy.
In a bowl, pour the entire 5 oz bottle of clear glue.
Add in a ½ cup of water.
Add in ½ tsp baking soda and stir.
Pour in the crayon shavings.
Add 1 tbsp contact solution. It will instantly begin to form.
It will be STICKY! Don’t panic! Mix the solution in the bowl until it starts to form.
Knead the slime until it is no longer sticky.
When no one is playing with it, make certain to store it in an airtight container. Don’t forget to look at all our other slime recipes as well!
