Take the wrappers off of about 3 to 4 pink crayons (get them here)
Break up crayons in microwave safe container (this is the one I use)
Put in microwave and bake at 20 second increments until fully melted. Be careful
the melted crayons will be VERY HOT!
Get an ice pack and set on plate. This will freeze the crayon mixture at the
bottom so it does not leak (check out these fun ice packs) they would
work great for this DIY project

Once full place in freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes
