Recycling Crayons

If you’ve got young kids than you probably have a household with a lot of broken crayons or crayon stubs.  Don’t toss ‘em in the trash—most crayons are petroleum-based.  Instead, you can mail them to where they’ll be recycled.  Or here’s another option:  microwave the stubs in a paper cup for 15 seconds.  The stubs will harden into a looking multi-hued crayon.  You’ll create a cool looking crayon your kids will love and also avoid contributing to a landfill.
