We have a mountain of old broken crayons, so yesterday, my two boys and I (home from school due to a snow day - needed entertaining!) recycled the crayons to make some lovely new ones

I was so inspired, I spent the day peeling crayons and making some for my grand kids. Thanks for sharing the link and your pictures, AWESOME!

I love this idea!  I'm going to hunt for broken or too-small-to-color-with crayons tonight and see if I can breathe some new life into them!
