We did the same "crazy crayons" from bits of paperless crayon. We put like
color in empty soup cans and heated them in an old electric skillet with
about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom.
Then instead of cupcake papers, we poured them into minature cookie
cutters. The cutters were placed on a no-stick cookie sheet. (Regular sized
cookie cutters make really large crayons and use up a lot of the melted
crayon.) They cool quickly and can be popped out of the cutter. We made
them at Christmas time, so they could be used for tree decorations with a
string loop imbedded in the crayon, then used for "coloring" after the
holidays. It still see students carrying them around like bracelets. Crayon
necklaces?
