Do you have lots of small bits and pieces of crayons around that nobody wants to use? This is a neat idea. Peel the paper off the crayon pieces and place the crayons in a muffin tin so that it is 1/3 filled. You can use all different colors of crayons. Put the muffin tin in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes until the crayons are all melted. Remove from oven, let cool to harden and there you have some neat crayon cakes to color with.
