Crayon R-e-s-p-e-c-t

Most classrooms have a big tub of worn-down crayons. Kids find it hard to find the color they need and it also makes coloring seem like a careless activity. In order to make coloring a real art activity, it is a good idea to have the crayons organized and to teach children to take care of them and keep them in order. To do this, you may use the bottom of cracker/crouton boxes, cake-mix boxes, etc. Cut the bottom of the box up to a height of about 2 inches and place the crayons upright in the box. You can have students help you organize each box by having a variety of colors in each.
