    Fun way to use up broken crayons. We did complimentary colors together like yellow/blue/green, red/pink/blue, etc.

    What a great idea for using up those annoying little pieces of crayon that you can't justify throwing away.<br/>Ours also really only had colour on the bottom too, but no big deal- the kids had fun making them and are using them for rubbings, which is working out well.<br/>Thanks for this one!<br/>Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #59.
