Recycled Crayons

Do you have hundreds of little broken and dirty crayons bits in your crayon box? I am a bit of a crayon snob and like to have fresh, new, pointy crayons for the children. Add to that the fact that I teach preschool Sunday School and I was left with a lot of yucky crayons bits. So instead of pitching them, I divided them by colors, melted them in the microwave and molded them using clear chocolate candy molds. I had to microwave mine for about 8-10 minutes for each batch. There has got to be a better way but the boy's friends each got a new Christmas-y crayon and I got rid of my stash. I saved the red, pink and white ones for Valentine's day.


  1. The crayon idea is great but, the new blog design is better yet. Its beautiful. Now that I got a digital camera, do you think I should blog?

  2. those are darling. completely darling!!

  3. Love that idea! Might have to use that myself one of these days!


I love to hear your thoughts and reflections!
