Crayon Makin

My niece Peanut spent part of the weekend with us, and since it was too hot to be outside, we did a fun indoor activity.  She brought over all her old, broken crayons and we turned them into new ones!  It was fun and really easy.  Here's what you do:

1. Gather up all of your stubby or broken crayons, and break them into small pieces.

2. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

3. Fill a muffin tin or other mold with an inch-thick layer of crayon pieces.  I didn't have a muffin tin devoted to this, so I lined with foil.  Would recommend using foil cups if you have them though as they will make the crayons prettier in the end.

4. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the wax is melted.

5. Allow the tin to cool; then pop out the crayons, and they're ready for use.
