I've read many articles about making your own crayons from broken ones using cookie molds, so I thought Wavey would find it a fun holiday project for kid-gifts.
So here's the rub: We didn't have enough organically-derived broken crayons, so we broke a apart a box of new ones...and what an UNHOLY MESS it was to peel the wrappers off of them.
Did you know generic crayons affix their wrappers with the same glue probably used to hold rocket ships together in space? Yep, now you know, and I have the wax under my nails to prove it.
We melted the crayons in the oven at 275-degrees for about 15 minutes and let them cool completely before popping them out of the mold. Success!
