A simple fix for all those broken Crayons

Items needed:

* Muffin Pan (I use a small one that I got at a yard sale.)
* Cooking Spray (or baking cups - especially if you are using a tin you cook in.)
* Broken Crayons

First, preheat oven to 200'. Separate crayons into color families. (i.e. purple & blue, blue & green, green & yellow, yellow & orange, orange & red) Just make your own color combinations. Take off all remaining paper and break crayons into small 1 inch or less pieces. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or use baking cups. Fill tin/cups with crayons. Bake at 200' for 9 minutes or until crayons are melted. Remove from oven. Let cool for 1 hour. If you are in a hurry for them, they may be cooled faster in the fridge.

This is really cool. And it would be easy for a small hand to hold. And older kids would think it was cool to have a "new color" to try out. Genius!
