    Recipe Introduction

    In 1903, Binney & Smith, Inc. put crayons on sale for the first time. Their brand name "Crayola" was made by putting the French word for chalk (craie) with "ola" (for oily). The first Crayola crayons came in a box of 8 and sold for 5 cents. Today, Binney & Smith produce about 7 million crayons every day in 120 colors. The average American child uses 730 crayons by his 10th birthday. It's no surprise that a study shows the smell of Crayola crayons is one of the twenty top scents recognized by adults in the U.S.

    Home-Made Crayons

    Crayon Pieces


    Line muffin pan cups with foil. Spray the foil very lightly with non-stick cooking spray (this is not 100% necessary, but it does make the crayons a bit easier to remove). Break crayons into tiny piece, an inch or less long. Fill the muffin pan cups with the crayon pieces. Fill each cup with like colors or experiment with mixing colors. Put the muffin tin in a 300 degree oven, and leave in there until all the crayon pieces are melted. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cooled you can pop out your crayons and try them out!
