  • Preheat the oven to 250˚ F
  • Peel all of the paper off of your crayons. You can use new crayons or used, broken crayons.
  • For best results, sort all of your crayons by like color. Red, yellow, and orange work well. Blue, green, and purple are great grouped, too. This part is pure preference.
  • Break the crayons in to smaller pieces and put one later of crayons in to each of the cavities. If you are using a standard baking tin, you can also line the baking tin with a cupcake liner if you wish.
