Recycle Crayons

Assalamu alaykum,
we had so many broken crayons around and kept on putting them aside. I thought maybe one day we could recycle them in same way.
Here it's how we recycle ours.

Gather up all of your broken crayons.
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
Fill the muffin tin with an inch-thick layer of crayon pieces.
Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the wax is melted.
Allow the tin to cool; then pop out the crayons, and they're ready for use.
If you don't have a muffin tin to use to crayon making, you can line your regular muffin tin with foil cups. Or use some nice cup cakes or different shaped metal rings.
Recycled crayons make a great no-cost gift and kids love them!
