thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas!
i have a (probably silly) question about taking broken crayons and
(my apologies to the one or two kids who have been in the same class with my girls every year!)
I wouldn't eat food in a pan that had been used to melt crayons!
do the crayons pop out of the molds without any spraying, etc?
before I cook each batch- they pop out of the pan like a charm!
what temp/ how long do you bake them for?
I bake our crayons at the lowest temperature
(I leave on the lightand spy through the window)
In the summer/spring, I just pull the pan out and carefully set it on our granite counter top to cool.
