    Using the label cutter included with the Crayon Melter, unwrap a white Crayola Crayon. Break crayon into smaller pieces.

    Load 2-3 crayon pieces into the top of Crayon Melter unit.

    Plug the Crayon Melter into a power source (adult assistance required). When the red light on the Crayon Melter turns to green, the crayon pieces have melted and the Crayon Melter is ready to use.

  • 4.

    Hold the Crayon Melter unit upright, and draw "snow-covered" trees on a piece of cardstock.
