Swirly Sunny Car Crayons

Have you ever had a SSCC? No? You absolutely must try it. They are just beautiful, dahling.
You need: a muffin tin and some old crayons (Do yourself a favor and use Crayola. Only Crayola. Don’t try to save 2.7 cents on the other brands… they are waxy.)
You can use the same muffin tin as for Sidewalk Chalk Paint…. Not one you plan to eat out of again. Unless you like the taste of wax in the morning…. Then, by all means, eat out of it J
Peel and break up the crayons into little pieces. Put the pieces into a muffin tin. Here’s your chance to get all crazy with the Cheez Whiz and make some funky color combinations, like Patriotic (red, white, and blue), Diva (Purple, pink, silver), and Rainbow (can you guess?).

Put the muffin tin on a foil-lined baking sheet (again, use the foil unless you want a little wax with your fries). Stick it on the dash of your car, truck, or SUV, in a sunny spot on a hot day. Don’t try this in January when it’s snowing. You will be disappointed.
Depending on the temp outside, wait 1-3 hours, until the wax is melted and swirly looking. Bring your crayons inside. Let them cool completely. Completely. Then, turn the muffin tin upside down over your baking sheet and whack it… hard… till the crayons fall out. Don’t be tempted to try to pry them out with a butter knife. Cool and Whack. Cool and Whack…
