If you want to design with them, then color on sandpaper - fairly thick on the rough side.  Then turn the sandpaper over on top of fabric like a plain T-shirt.  Iron the back of the sandpaper (the smooth side), and the colors will transfer to the fabric.  You have to experiment some to get the heat right.  The thickness of the sandpaper and how thickly you colored on it affect what temp you need to have on the iron.

The melted crayon art works great by running the crayons through a hot glue gun - use the crayon in place of a glue stick to melt it.  It doesn't even ruin the glue gun - although I had to run an entire glue stick through it to clean the crayon colors out of it.

Please be REALLY REALLY CAREFUL if you are planning on running them thru a glue gun.  I did that and after 10 crayons or so my glue gun sparked and burnt out.  Also if it gets clogged with the wax it will spatter out the back or front and hurts when you get it on your skin (baaaaaaaad crafty experience)

Hot glue them onto a large paper board. Then take a hair dryer and melt them. It should look like this:

When I try to cook something, I end up eating it before I'm done.

Melt them! I'm not sure how that art is called, but once in grade school art class we melted crayons and did some paintings with them Smiley) or maybe you can just melt them then mold them to something Smiley)
