Just thought I'd pick your creative brains a bit, my fellow artsednetters!
I have so many boxes of old crayons, many are the big Kdg. kind that are
still whole, but I'd love to find a way tomake art with them in an unusual
way. Sculpture would be fun, but I teach k-5, so ideas involving melting
crayons to attach them to themselves won't work at my level... any thoughts
on the subject? >>

Melt them down on your own, over the summer. Put the melted mixed colors
into little shaped molds, and bag them with a colorful twist tie. Give them
out at gifts or "Art Star" prizes or if you have enough, to entire classes.
Also, use the tons of colorful paper wrap pieces to make paper or stationary
or memo pads for yourself, or as gifts.
