Making Crayons

Making your own crayons can be loads of fun and easy. It's also a great way to get rid of all your broken crayons! All I did was preheat oven on to 350 degrees, then while that was warming up I had the kids tear off all of the wrappers. Once we had enough unwrapped crayons we broke them up and put them into muffin tins. You can do it without the muffin cup papers but makes it way easier to clean up if you have them. It takes about 10-12 minutes in the oven. Once you take them out it will be liquid so they need to sit and harden, just like a melted candle would. Try not to stir them, part of the fun is having multi-colored crayons :)
