Here is a good use for all those broken crayons that we all throw out; it seems wasteful. Gather them up, peel off the paper, and add about 10 different colours into your measuring cup. Melt the crayons in the microwave. Time will vary with each microwave, so watch closely. Stir often. Use plastic candy or sucker molds you can get in the craft section. When melted pour crayon mix into the molds. Let them cool overnight and remove from molds. We do this often the kids love colouring with their favourite characters.
