My son is entering Kindergarten and on his school supply list was 4 boxes of 8 primary crayons. K-Mart was running a special on a box of 24 Crayola crayons for .25 cents. A box of 8 was .89 cents. I bought 3 boxes of crayons and had one perfect set at home. I pulled the 8 primary colors out and put them into a snack sized zip lock bag and put the rest of the crayons in his own box. The boxes never last anyway. :)
Does he not have to take the 4 boxes of primary colors to school? Most teachers want it all at school in case a crayon gets lost or finally breaks into very small pieces then they can just get them another one out of their supply.
Love the Ziploc bags!
To Teresa Kay, not sure if I understand your question, but I did send four sets of the primary colors. I had one complete set at home. I also have saved every Crayola crayon from dining out. :)
