How People Make Crayons
 
one When people make crayons, they mix together hot liquid wax, some hardening powder and some pigment, which gives the crayons their color. The liquid wax is emptied into a bucket then poured into a mold with lots of holes.
 
two Each hole will be filled with the hot wax. When it has cooled, the liquid wax becomes hard and the machine pops the finished crayons up through the holes!
 
three After the crayons get paper labels wrapped around them, people take them to the collating machine where lots of different colors are put together in a group.
 
four Each group of crayons is put into a box. Now they're ready to be shipped to stores everywhere so people can buy them and use them!
