Coloring With The Stars :OP

Okay okay that is probably the lamest title I have ever come up with lol, but after spending 5 hours cleaning my children's rooms top to bottom today my brain is just about done. Of course with deep clean comes a lot of things from broken toys to broken crayons. Well I remembered as I cleaned that the other day while on Pinterest I came across a picture of remelted crayons. So I rush to find the directions and :O( sadly it was just a picture of cut crayons and the finished product. So I though ehhh why not let's figure this out.lol So I gathered all my crayons up and peeled off any remaining paper. The next issue was getting them in small pieces. I cut them just long enough to fill the hole of the mold standing up. My kids insisted that we had to try to keep like colors together lol, I thought it would be far more fun to mix them, so we did a little of both :O) After filling the molds as best I could I thought hmmmmm....soooo....how do I melt it.lol Well I tried them in the microwave for 2 minutes with no change :O( I remembered I had a heat gun....hehehe....so I turn it on low and melted them down. as they cooled I noticed holes coming to the top so I heated them up again. They turned out okay but I think I needed to get them a little hotter maybe next time turning it on high. I'm thinking this may be a great summer time craft! Here in West Texas I could simply put the mold on my dashboard.lol
