    Default Pro Tip: In the case of power loss

    Just a tip, especially if you have smaller kids. In case there's a power outage after dark and you can't locate any candles use your kids crayons. Stand them up with the tips up and light the pointed end. A whole crayon will burn for 30 minutes.

    Thanks but crayons are the only thing my 1 year old will eat and I can't stand the thought of him going hungry when the power is out.

    The green milk bones are a good substitute for candles if the kid is really hungry.
    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    Stick them through a cupcake wrapper to catch the wax.

    Crayons are not bad. You can use a cheese grater to shave them over salad, or put them in smoothies.
