    These are a fabulous idea!! Nice up-cycle at the same time. They came out great!! I also think it's a great way to spend quality time with your son.

    When my kids were little I did this with them. We just used (had) the regular muffin circles. the neat thing about putting them is the tin and melting that way is as stated by hopetoquilt, when the kids color with them the color will change as it goes from one crayon to the next. Its a great way to use the broken and worn crayons from the previous school year during the summer-cause they all want a new box of crayons for the first day of school.;-)

    we used to call them magic crayons. I love the flower and heart shape for valentines to exchange.

    I used to do these with my kids with regular muffin tins. Yours are so cute with the shapes! For toddlers, a fat crayon is easy to hold onto. Older kids love the streaks of color.
