Create your own fun crayons by recycling old broken worn down crayons. I saw this idea on pinterest; http://pinterest.com/pin/107171666102309043/ and it reminds me of the chunky block crayons I loved as a kid. You can have a lot of fun with this project by utilizing different shape pans and using different color patterns. This is also a great project to do with kids or really anyone of any age would enjoy this. I won't give a tutorial because here's a great link that leads to a blog from pinterest that does a perfect job providing a step by step tutorial; http://juliegallow-creatingart.blogspot.com/2011/11/homemade-crayons.html?showComment=1322113007540#c7182647551314310085.
I ended up finding the silicone mini brownie pan at Michael's Craft Store and paid $5 with a 50% off coupon. A co-worker gave me a sandwich bag of her daughter's old crayons. About 30 crayons made 24 recycled crayons. It took about 20-25 min. to melt the crayons. I'd like to keep making these and try different shaped pans.
