First, make sure all of the paper wrappers are removed from your crayon pieces. An x-acto knife works well to cut a slit into each crayon wrapper for easier removal, just be careful not to let the kiddos help with this part. Place unwrapped crayon pieces into a pan of choice size and shape. I used a cheap silicon one I found in the dollar section of the Target store actually. Just note, I've heard that baking crayon pieces may ruin your pan, so please don't use your best pans to do this in, just in case the wax from the crayons can not be removed.
Bake in a 200 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. Just make sure to periodically check on them, as some batches are quicker than others depending on the sizes of crayon. Remove them from the oven and let them cool completely before removing them or else they might break or not set properly. Once cool, peel them out of the pan.

|Ben working on breaking some more crayons for us for future use :P lol.. he's just learning now, not to eat the crayons. :)|
