Butch, try some ethanol, (lacquer thinner) on a cotton ball and work at it 
carefully, it will either be the answer to the problem or it will remove the 
paint as well as the crayon.  If you can get your hands on some of the old 
fashioned dry cleaning fluid that will also remove wax, without removing the 
crayon.  Sorry, I do not know what is in that stuff, but it removes wax from 
batik fabric.

If that does not look like a solution then you will have to use a primer, my 
Mom liked shellac but now there is a product called kilz, it is a white 
basecoat.  Its only purpose is to keep the crayon from repelling the new 
paint that you will have to apply.

Or, you could enjoy the creativity of this lovely child and just leave it for 
stories and the head shaking that will follow.  At the very least take a some 
pics so this will be more than just a story in years to come.  Bet she turns 
out to be good in art.

Let us know what happens.
