How To Make & Recycle Old Crayons

Anybody who knows me personally would know I’m a hoarder, I cannot throw anything out. Last year I started collecting old and broken crayons with the hope of doing something fun with them and today we did. Kayla and I spent the afternoon upcycling our crayons. This project is the perfect rainy day activity and it kept her entertained. These upcycled crayons would make the cutest homemade gift too.
