Got Crayons?

For me, there is something about a fresh box of crayons that immediately brings me back to my childhood and days spent coloring with my sister.  It was a sensory experience: the smell of new crayons is so unique and the texture of the wax as it spread color on the paper.  Pressing hard to make dark lines or accents, a light touch to shade areas.  How can such a simple invention bring so much pleasure?

When we were done with the OLD CRAYONS…my sister and I melted them down into an empty soup can and used the wax to make our own candles.  Waste not, want not.  Now there is something else you can do with those unwanted crayon stubs.

Now through AUGUST 2nd, AC Moore Arts & Crafts stores will recycle your broken and unwanted crayons. IN partnership with the Crayon Initiative, they’ll donate them to children’s hospitals and keep them out of landfills.
