Anyway...I do like to melt stuff.
We have piles of crayons. I think they are reproducing in the cupboard.
I've recycled crayons many times with varying degrees of success.
Cheap dollar store variety and the free crayons from restaurants contain too much wax and not enough pigment.
The best ones are the Crayola.
Spray mini muffin pan with olive oil to act as a release agent.
Melt in a 230° oven for about 10 minutes.
Now we have a fun, chunky set of crayons to spark some renewed interest in coloring...hopefully.
