How many of you art teachers have tons of broken crayons that you get so sick of looking at? I did..notice I said I did.
Well, I came up with a great way to reuse those crayons, but also make some money for art supplies in the process. I am making shaped crayons from old broken crayons from last year.
I melt the crayons down in a rubber mold and sell the crayons to the students 2 for $1.00 or $.50 a piece. The kids love them I don't have to spend any money to make them and the art room can buy more supplies as the year progresses. I make them in a variety of colors and shapes.
Why didn't I think of this before!
They are so cool! Here are two of my crayons. I will use open house as a way to advertise to parents.
