How to make your own crayons using candy molds!
I was searching through all my old picture files when I found a bunch that I had taken for a tutorial a while back. Since I don't have a place to put them, I thought you guys may be interested in trying this with your kids...

    Step 5

    Put them on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven at around 350 degrees for a few minutes.
    DO NOT USE THE MICROWAVE!
    Keep an eye on them, because they'll melt pretty quick.

    When they're completely liquified, take the cookie sheet out of the oven and carefully pour the wax into your candy molds.

I made these last year w my daughter for her christmas party at school using a metal gingerbread man tin instead of the cupcake liners. They were so cute. She had to warn everyone they weren't candy. They looked so cute & a great way to recycle those crayons instead of 700 years. I got to try it w the plastic molds next time.
