I didn’t know that you could do this! The Crayon Initiative recycles unwanted crayons and remanufactures them into new ones! These new crayons are donated to children’s hospitals, art programs and other organizations that are invested in our children.
Art projects for kids and their families can be so therapeutic and relaxing. It takes the stress of a new room or hospital bed and puts the emphasis on fun, coloring, pictures, art. It is really a blessing for a family that is working through health issues with their kids. A small distraction, a way to forget about the pain or fear. I’ve seen many pediatric units covered with crayon art, it helps.
This is really a cool idea.
