One morning Claire dumped the crayons out. While I was cleaning them up, I realized it was time to condense the shabby color collection.
I happened to have a disposable mini muffin pan that I picked up on clearance. So I chopped the crayons into small pieces, and placed them in the muffin tin.
Then I placed them in the oven at 275* for about 7-10 mins. Long enough for me to make the beds, and almost forget about them. I pulled them out and they were nice and melty and swirly.
I let them cool and popped them out of the muffin tin.
Hurray for new crayons!
