One crayons will surprisingly light up a room and a box will last a long time.

  • I tried this with a few different brands and found out that the name brand (i.e. Crayola) lasts a little over 12 minutes while the ‘Knock-offs’ (from dollar stores, etc.) only last 5-7 minutes. Hard to believe that brands would make that much of a difference. Must be a matter of wax type and density.
