I think crayons are a top staple in the journey of homeschooling. The young and the old find uses for them. My older children use crayons to color maps for History, label bone parts for Science, or just to draw and color. If you have toddlers like me, you will find that they use them too! They may have them for an afternoon snack. They may also draw you a beautiful mural on your living room wall or your dining room table. What ever the age, there is a use for crayons. However, do you know how they are made? I did not until I read this.
There are alot of projects and ideas for using crayons. Here is an article that I came across that had a number of good ideas in it. The article is called Crazy for Crayons.
One of the most original ideas for crayons has to come from Crayola. They even have a section for Islamic Art
Do you have alot of broken crayons? Well, with my toddlers and their activeness, I have alot of these. Well, if you do too, do not throw them away. Here are some ideas to recycle crayons.
I hope you find this post helpful in using your crayons!
