50/52: Crayons (#40)

I wanted to get my cousin's kids that Crayola crayon maker for Christmas. You put crayon bits in it and it melts them into new swirly crayons. When I was younger, Crayola used to make all kinds of totally awesome crayons - metallics, glitter, swirly ones - but they don't really do that anymore.

Then I read some reviews of the crayon maker, and it seemed like it was a hassle to use. So I decided I'd just make my own. I bought a box of 64 and a bunch of Wilton candy molds. I broke the crayons up and melted them in silicone baking cups and poured the melted wax into the molds. They came out pretty neat!
