The things some of you wacky people come up with.
If simplicity is perfection then this is perfect. I may have to go through my son's old crayon box and go camping.

Straight off of iFunny

i saw it there too...but don't be so certain. I have lit crayons like that before i saw it there. I first tried using a string wick, but soon realized it wasn't needed

You could but the tape would burn, if you use the wire that u can push it down as it burns and use it again when it is done

Hey can you tape the top?

This wouldn't last very long...

Most companies pride themselves on using "Non-Toxic" products to produce crayons. Check the box, but I think that is pretty much all of them...

No, the flame stays inside the three and slowly burn the paper and won't move down until the wax is burned

ironsmiter (author)2013-06-18

with the three crayon candle, does the paper eventually catch all around and make a big flaming torch(triple sized single crayon candle)? or does it stay lit candle-like?

Mikeman4290 (author)2013-06-18

Just smells like crayon the whole time but its not that powerful that u won't be able to stand it.

mh76dk (author)2013-06-17

I wonder if this could produce unhealthy fumes. Other than that little 'but' I like it

Can't be worse than when a child eats them to see if the yellow one tastes like cheese.

knexinventer (author)2013-06-17

are there any smells given off by this like burnt paper or plastic?

Mikeman4290 (author)2013-06-17

Unless there is something in the paper or wax it should be the same as a candle
