Then I microwaved them for around 8 or so minutes (I checked on them every 2 - 4 minutes). Once they were completely melted (a few of the colors actually had a chunk in them that wouldn't melt, but I figured it wouldn't matter too much once they cooled anyway) I poured them into the ice cube molds.
Here's comes reality...
Don't leave them sitting for one second while your head is turned! Lou came home from school and Maisy was so excited to show her what we were doing that she went and dumped half of the melty stuff right out. I'm glad it really wasn't too hot, I had actually already dumped a little on myself while checking to see how they were coming along in the microwave and it didn't burn my skin at all. It dried the second it touched me. Somehow Maisy didn't even get any on her.
Ok, so I finished pouring the melted crayon into the molds and put them in the freezer for around 30 minutes. Then I was able to pop them right out. These should be fun to color with!
