Step 2: Sort Crayons

Sort crayons by color But only in big groups (it wil help later)
I used jars but you could use bowls or any other container.

Step 3: Peel Crayons

Now use your X-Acto knife to cut a slit down the whole wrapper of the crayon and take it off
Other way is if you have kids (probably where you got crayons from anyway)have them peel by just pulling the wrapper off piece by piece

Step 4: Preheat Oven

Preheat oven to 275 degrees

Step 5: Sort and Break the Crayons

You already have them in large groups so make whatever mixed colors you want within the color groups but break them in pieces so they fit in whatever size muffin tin you use  Add the liner .  Wax STICKS!!!!!!!!!

Step 6: Put It in the Oven
