What do I do with tiny pieces of crayons?

Reusable Crayons

To use up the tiny crayon pieces that kids will no longer use, spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, peel the paper off the crayon bits and place them in the tin. Heat the crayons in a warm oven (200-250 degrees) until they've melted, and let them cool overnight. The kids will love their new giant rainbow crayons, and you didn't need to go buy new crayons.
