A boy in my class a couple years ago gave these as little Valentines made out of melted crayons. He said, "For Crayon Out Loud, Happy Valentine's Day"... could also say, "You COLOR my world!" Use silicone cups to melt them in. baha love it<--- so cute, I have to remember this for dusty!!
The crayons are lined up along the edge and melted on a foam board using a heat gun. Specific heat is applied for the desired outcome of several defined drips. There is direct dripping from the crayon pieces that extends through the lower third of the board, with some drips extending all the way to the bottom. Wrappers are left on this piece to emphasized the melting of the crayons.
Sun Melted recycled crayons ~ I am going to try using the cookie cutters in the oven instead of a mold. I have tons of cookie cutters. On the next hot day I will try using solar power to do the melting!

Have you tried melted crayon rocks with your kids yet? Melted crayon shells works the same way but makes an awesome beach trip art project!
