Old crayons beautiful again

I have become addicted to Pinterest.  On Sunday we did a little crayon recycling project that I found on pinterest.  It was rainy and muggy so we stayed inside most of the day, my six year sorted through the heaps of crayons we have in boxes all around the house.  She collected all the little broken pieces and removed all the paper. We put all the like colors together in a silicon baking mold, I used a flower mold but you could use any shape or size to make this fun! Preheat the oven to 300 and bake them for 20-25 minutes.  Remove and let cool thouroughly I let mine cool overnight just to make sure they were back to their original state. The result is some cool looking new crayons!
