Would paints get too dusty, or brushes too annoying to keep clean? (I suppose dusty paint would be its own kind of fascinating medium, now that I think about it) (thinking and typing at the same time) (deal with it)
Would crayons melt?
Would pencil shavings run the risk of MOOPin' it up if not perfectly and consistently contained?
Am I wildly overthinking this? (first timer) (in case you haven't already guessed) (hush now)
Any anecdotes about successful or unsuccessful experiences with small-scale art media are entirely welcome.

Paints... eh, probably fine if you have a playa only set but account for shorter working times than you're used to. With acrylics you'd probably want synthetic brushes and a proper brush cleaning solution instead of water.
