I was at church, making copies of our ward newsletter and the librarian was sorting through all the crayon boxes and dropping all the broken pieces in the trash. I bit my tongue as I stapled the copies together, watching out of the corner of my eye. Then finally I couldn't take it any longer! "Are you really THROWING all those away?!? Can I have them?" She seemed awfully surprised that I would want these tiny bits of useless wax. "You want them?" "Yes, the kids and I can melt them down and make new crayons out of them!" "Oh, you can do that?" Okay, so I'm going on faith here, because I've seen it done on various blogs, but I have never actually done it myself, but I knew we could do it.
