Making Crayons I
Broken crayon pieces; Muffin tin, candy mold or cupcake pan
Place crayon pieces into muffin tin, candy mold or cupcake pan. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Leave in oven long enough to melt. Turn off the oven and leave in the oven or take out very carefully so as not to mix colors if you are making multi-colored crayons. Wax will be very hot.
Making Crayons II
Broken crayon pieces; Mason jars; Muffin tin, candy mold or cupcake pan
Using a Mason jar, melt the crayon pieces in a large pot of boiling water. Then pour them into the molds and let them cool. They just pop out.
Tip: Keep your colors together (i.e. browns w/brown, purples w/purples, etc.)
1 3/4 Cup Ivory Snow; (powder); 50 drops food coloring; 1/4 Cup water
Mix water & soap flakes together. Add food coloring & put mixture into an ice cube tray. Allow hardening. Break or cut into pieces. Fun to write with on the tub when bathing & face & hands!
