Remember the 64 Pack with the sharpener on the box?  Well, I couldn’t find the 64 pack, but they still make a 96 pack with a sharpener.

While every color is different, unique and beautiful in its own way, they somehow manage to all live together in one box. Click to Tweet

Coloring books and crayons are one of the first artistic pursuits introduced to young children.  

Your Grandchildren probably love to color, too. 

But what happens when crayons break, perform their coloring duties until they become nubs, or there are only two crayons left in the package. 

Christmas comes and Santa brings a new box!

Here is a fun project to share with your Grandkids while recycling the old, worn out crayons. 

Let them get creative with their collection of colors.
