Step 1: Prepare

Peel of the wrapper. If you can, peel it carefully.

Step 2: Cut

You should take a pair of scissors and cut the broken ends of the crayon and make it as straight as possible (not perfect).

Step 3: Fix It

Now for the real fixing part. You have to think of the crayon as a rectangular prism and not a cylinder.You have to melt each if the four long sides with a lighter until they look like a new crayon on ONLY that side. Repeat for the other 3 sides

Step 4: Almost Done

After all four sides are complete, run under cold water for about 5 secs.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Enjoy your coloring! (Optional): You can put your wrapper back on if you peeled it well in the first step
