Once in a Family Fun magazine one mom wrote in and suggested you use an empty water bottle with screw on lid to hold colored pencils. We decided to use the same idea but recycle our empty spice containers and use them for travel Crayon holders.
RECYCLED CRAYONS (Remove all wrappers from your crayons and break the crayons into small pieces. Place in a muffin tin (I used a star shaped silicone one) and bake at 275F for about 15 minutes (until all the crayons are melted). Remove from oven and allow to set completely - at least 1 hour.)
