- Peel off the wrappers. This is tedious and you're bound to get crayon in your nails. It's okay...it'll be well worth it.
- Spray a pan with non-stick spray. I used a fun, car themed cookie pan. You can get creative and find many themed muffin or cookie pans, or candy molds. I'm lucky enough to live near Wilton Industries, who makes a ton of baking supplies.
- Arrange the crayons. Mix the colors in the mold however you want. All red in one mold, multi-colored in another. Just be sure not to put too many crayons in each mold, otherwise the wax will overflow.
- Put the crayons into a pre-heated 200 degree oven. Be sure to watch the crayons carefully. You can do this by turning on the oven light & peeking in the window. At higher temperatures, the pigment tends to separate from the wax. Even at 200 degrees, I'd recommend using a toothpick to stir each crayon to make sure there is no separation.
- Let cool, then freeze. Let the pan cool briefly, then freeze for up to 30 minutes. Freezing will help the crayons pop out very easily. Be sure not to put them immediately into the freezer as this may cause the crayons to crack. I'd also recommend not leaving them in the freezer for too long as this also may cause the crayons to crack.
