What do you do with old broken crayon stubs? We always seem to have a container of them lurking around and finally decided we needed to find something to do with them. So, we rounded up a bunch of ideas for crafts made from crayons. If you need new crayons for any of these, we recommend checking your local dollar store. You can usually pick them up there for cheap!
