Here's what you'll need....
Ends of old crayons in many colors
Tin can, muffin tin, or other metal mold
Remove paper from crayons. Put crayons of different colors together in a muffin tin or mold, filling it one-half to three-quarters full. Place mold or tin can on the stove at a low setting. Melt the crayons slowly, so that the colors do not mix. When melted, cool or immerse mold in a sink filled with cold water. When the super crayon is hard, remove from mold. Use it to create multi-colored pictures! Don't forget to comment and let us know how it turn out!
