home made crayons

so the natives decided to make something for the youngest 
i suggested home made crayons 
they jumped at the idea! hehe

"how do we do it?...will they still color?"
always with the questions my natives..
i told them it was easy and yes they would still color!

i set them down in front of the giant plastic tub that holds our crayons
i said now just start peeling! haha
we used all the broken bits and old crayons
peeled them of their wrappers and filled the molds with them

i turned the oven to about 320*
and we put them in on a baking sheet and watched them melt
took about 10-15 min.
i stirred them up a bit with toothpick
to make sure they were melted through
and to even the colors out a bit

we let them dry and the next morning
popped them out! 
yay gorgeous lovely tree shaped crayons!
