Children love getting their hands into the cut up crayon pieces and mixing colors or creating monochromatic crayons.  Talk about a wonderful way to introduce the world of colors to your child!

Want to make them yourself?  See my tutorial here.  Think outside of the box--how about keeping homemade crayons on hand to add to gifts for children with a sketch pad all tied up nicely.

Happy Weekend!
