Crayon Melting Experiment

If you decide to be a crazy person and walk outside your air conditioned house
you will notice it is HOTT
Not single T hot
Double T HOTT
So as the kids and I were talking about how hot it is and what would happen if it were 485 degrees
we wondered if it was hot enough to melt a crayon.
So we made our hypothesis.
 Braeden said No
Ava said Yes
I said Yes
Reed said Yes
And because Braeden didn't want to be the only one saying no he claims to have heard Mason say No

We put some of our old crayons outside and this was the result
Isn't it beautiful!
I can see a melted crayon art project coming soon.
It is hot enough to melt a crayon and probably fry an egg!
And of course the kids couldn't have all that ooey goodness and not touch it.
But at least they used sticks!
As a little side note I noticed that the washable crayons melted faster than the regular ones.
It would be interesting to try it with different brands and see what happens.
If anyone tries it let me know how it goes!

  1. What a great experiment. I love how you wrote down everyone's hypothesis. We have so many broken crayons, we need to do this - I'm sure it's hot enough.


Show me some comment love!
