Melting Crayons

It was sunny outside when the kids got home from school and K decided to sit outside and draw. 

She took some crayons and paper I gave her and sat at a little table. 

She was out there for about 20 minutes then came inside again.

She went out again a little while later and then came in again to tell me that the "crayons were wet". If I'm honest, I thought she had spilled a drink over them. She hadn't.

This is what I found when I went outside.

The current temperature is 26°C/79°F.

According to crayola, crayons begin to soften at about 105°F and melt at about 128°F-147°F
