Great way to recycle old crayons and teach my students about tolerance of people who are a different race. Accompanies the book "The Crayon Box That Talked" really well, as well as the book "My Many Colored Days". I bake the crayons at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. The mold is from Hobby Lobby.
The Crayon Box That Talked Poem beginning of the year -- use to teach about using multiple colors (read the book, then the poem. Draw a picture with only black...discuss. Then draw the same picture with new colors.)
