3 unused or slightly used crayons Cotton string Tape Scissors Wire
Lay three crayons side by side, and measure string to fit the three crayons.
Cut string to desired length (preferably small).
Break off a piece of tape, lay sticky side up, and put two crayons on it so they both stick.
Place the length of the string on the two taped crayons so that it is inside of the middle of the crayons.
Carefully place the third crayon on top of the two others and the strings so that it rests on the other two.
Slowly wrap the tape around all three crayons and be careful not to move them.
Select a desired length of wire (6 inches)
Slowly wrap the wire tightly around the three crayons so that they are held together at the top.
Now do the same thing down by the tape.
Slowly remove the tape and adjust the wires so that the top is near the half mark and the top of the crayons, and move the bottom wire ...
Trim the string so it is close to the tips of the crayons.
Light the string and make sure that it stays lit for a few seconds, in a survival situation, this can burn for around 1 hour.
You can light these in the dark and produce quite a bit of heat.
You could also burn a single crayons at the paper that will last for 30 minutes.
