Reworking Crayons

Reworking crayons, originally uploaded by skipthechips.

With a string of cold, grey and snowy days, the craft scene here seems to have blossomed. Here are some crayons the girls made with about 40 crayons hand selected from their box of roughly 1,000,000 crayons. They liked peeling the wrappers off, but their favorite part seemed to be snapping them into tiny pieces. We sorted them by color and then I gave them a muffin tin to fill however they wanted. To melt them, just heat the oven to about 150 degrees, then turn it off. Put them in the warmed up oven for 15 minutes and take them out. They will be really soft, but not totally melted. Let them dry and pop them out of the muffin tin. Presto.
