If your looking to donate most of them you can try calling or Snail mailing Indian reservations poor schools are also good candidates for newish unwanted crayons. Just call around, someone will want them.

I like the slicing up idea but using that to do a mosaic of some sort and of course with primary colors anything is possible.  Also it would lend itself very well to some kind of mock stained glass effect. 

I would definitely try to put some in separate lots on Ebay.  Some art teacher would probably love to have a box load of primary crayons.

I just taught a basic sewing and design class and one of my students made a wrist cuff out of crayon bits by sewing/hot glueing them to a bit of fabric -- it looks fantastic, I have to say!!  You could also make a fun crayon crown....

Wow so many more responses!  Thanks everyone..

There is certainly a bunch of good ideas, although I'm still now sure what I'll do with all of them still (I will probably end up some so that I don't have to deal with them.. lol).

I'm insanely jealous! I make art pieces with crayons. Here's an example:


Craftster image hosting rotated the photo for some reason but you get the idea.... I hot-glued the crayons to a canvas then heated them with a heat gun.

sprinklez I actually have been thinking about trying something like that!  Have you done the crayon melting on top of other paintings at all?  (If so, what type and kind of paint did you use?).  I'm not sure how some paints would hold up to being heated, but that could be interesting.  Although I guess you *could* melt the crayons before putting them onto the canvas,  I guess I will just have to experiment.  ^_^

Thanks Trekky!

sweatereyes, I have not tried crayons over other paintings. That's an excellent idea though. I think something really cool would be to get paintings from a thrift store or garage sale or something and melt crayons over that! I can't paint so the extent of any canvas I painted myself would probably be a solid color background. It may affect the paint but you can test it on a small part or make a sample with the paint to test first. If I do something like that I will definitely let you know how it turns out. :]
