Homemade Crayons from Molds

I didn't think this project would be blog-worthy, but we learned a couple things I wanted to jot down...

I mainly used Ashley's instructions from Make It and Love It (broke crayons in molds and melted in the oven at 250 -- but ours took A LOT longer for some reason - 20-30 minutes?); let the melted crayons sit for a few minutes; then we put them in the freezer like Jill said from Homemade by Jill.

The funny thing was, we mixed our broken Crayola and Prang crayons with some of our junky crayons from the dollar store and restaurants.  It was interesting because the different consistencies separated!  So, there's a layer of wax with basically no color on one side of the crayon, and very nice color on the other!  How funny!  I thought the different crayons would mix and we'd get a mediocre crayon.
