Cute Crayon Treat Bags

A friend of mine (and fellow Mom) was recently telling me how guilty she feels buying “new” crayons for school when there are tons of perfectly fine broken pieces of crayons all over the house. The solution– don’t feel gulity… upcycle those old stubby crayons into cute ones. They would make great back to school party favors too.

    What cute crayons! I’m about to clean up our craft area for the kids. I need to get a silicone mold and make some cute crayons for them from the yucky old pieces.
