Are they just your average wax crayon?....like the crayola ones I used to draw on the walls with and get told off by my parents?...obviously not since the lockdown as I’ve not been able to see them for a few weeks

I looks great! very clever!

 

I might have to buy myself some crayons and give that a try one day. How I explain to Sarah why I’ve put crayons in the freezer is another matter
